While observing waders on the beach yesterday at Black Rock in Kerry, I noticed what looked like little plastic bubbles or balls about 1 inch long, washed up on the sand.  As I carefully opened one, I discovered a small wiggling translucent Lobster inside.  These egg sacks of the Lobster must have been dislodged from seaweed or kelp and strewn up on the beach after recent storms. I am amazed that the gulls did not cop onto them and wolf down the lot.  In the first photo you can see the baby lobster is still inside his protective cocoon.
