My girlfriend, Della and I both found a Junonia shell on the Gulf Coast of Mexico and joined the few that have been fortunate enough to discover one. We were at the same beach but one week apart. Della, from Del’s Shells actually found two and has one that is more whole than the one in my mosaic!
Wikipedia says this about this rare find,
“The shell was historically greatly prized for its beauty and apparent rarity. However, the shell is still very hard to find naturally cast up on beaches, so people who find a junonia while shelling on Sanibel Island, Florida, often get their picture in the local newspapers.”
We were at Belleair beach not in Sanibel but we both took photos to share with all of you!
It was a shell seeker’s dream!
