At low tide it all comes to light, an amazing variety of molluscan species, mainly Oysters,
caked to the normally below water ends of aerial prop roots in SWFL estuaries. Some branches break off under the often considerable weight of these clusters. Most molluscs are water
cleaning filter feeders which, in turn, grow into fare not just for humans but for coastal beings like
shore and seabirds, whelks, diabolically adept little oyster drill snails, sea stars, crabs and fish.
