Tufts Of Grass
These rocks are in the splash zone for the ocean, but would never be covered. Somehow the grass has a footing. This image looks somewhat like a photo of a roof.

Sail Jellyfish
These were washed up in great numbers (>100) in some places.
Species: Velella velella (Sail Jellyfish, By-the-wind sailor)

Sea Urchine Bursting Out
Shot through water so there are limits to how much sharpness you can get.
Species: Strongylocentrotus purpuratus (Purple Sea Urchin)

Black Katy Chiton
I love how Sea Sacs (Halosaccion glandiforme) has chosen to colonize the plates on this Chiton.
Species: Katharina tunicata (Black Katy Chiton), Halosaccion glandiforme (Sea Sacs)

Aggregate Green Anemone
This one was way under a rock so I don't think it gets as much light and consequently had less alegae and green color.
Species: Anthopleura elegantissima (Aggregating Anemone, Clonal Anemone)

Giant Green Anemone
These aren't as tolerant of drying out as the smaller Aggregate Green Anemone so you have to shoot through more water to see them.
Species: Anthopleura xanthogrammica (giant green anemone)

Knot Around Anchor
This is Bull Kelp (Nereocystis luetkeana) that has been dislodged from the bottom (you can see the anchor in the lower right hand corner of the frame) and become knotted and then washed into shore. This plant is an annual - it dies every winter.
Species: Nereocystis luetkeana (Bull Kelp)

Knotted Kelp
This is Bull Kelp (Nereocystis luetkeana) - it dies every winter and washes up, or is eaten.
Species: Nereocystis luetkeana (Bull Kelp)

Green Knot
The night before was a particularly high tide so things like kelp and old shoes were washed high up the beach.
Species: Nereocystis luetkeana (Bull Kelp)

Rainbow-leaf
Mazzaella something, probably Mazzaella splendens. These plants are iridescent so the colors change as you move the camera around. It's also extremly slipery if you step on it.

Dead Mans Fingers
This is one of my favorites - I only found it growing on one rock. Also called Sea sacks, or Halosaccion glandiforme.
Species: Halosaccion glandiforme (Sea Sacs)

Short Sea Lettuce
Prasiola something. I found this plant growing at the highest limits of the tide, often near fresh water.

Rock Weed
Otherwise known as Fucus gardneri. This is one of the most common seaweeds, found mostly in the high tide areas.
Species: Fucus gardneri (Rock Weed)

Mussels And Barnacles
Probably California Mussels (Mytilus californiensis), growing in with Leaf Barnacle (Pollicipes polymerus). These two spieces usually have large homogenous colonies - so it looks like the Mussels are overgrowing the Barnacle colony.
Species: Mytilus californianus (California mussel), Pollicipes polymerus (Goose Barnacle or Goose Neck Barnacle)

Leaf Barnacle
Pollicipes polymerus, sometimes called goose barnacle or goose neck barnacle. These usually grow in clumps.
Species: Pollicipes polymerus (Goose Barnacle or Goose Neck Barnacle)

Shield Limpet And Ribbed Limpet
When this rock is under water, all the limpets get up and walk around. The Shield Limpets (Lottia pelta) are the smooth round limpets. The Ribbed Limpets (Lottia digitalis) is the rougher cones, with radiating ribs.
Species: Lottia pelta (Shield Limpet), Lottia digitalis (Ribbed Limpet)
