purple sea snails

for some reason a lot of these snails were washed up on the beach

 

must have been the weather - winds & currents, i haven't found many of them before

 

they live in the surface layers of sub-tropical and tropical oceans and stay afloat on a raft of bubbles

 

purple sea snails are are darker purple underneath (the top is a greyish-light purple)
