Beach Art 2: Smiling face with ammonite fossil and two winkles at Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK - part of the Jurassic Coast - 04.06.2008

This cheeky smiling face was seen on the beach at Lyme Regis, Dorset. It looks a bit like one of the Wallace and Grommit animation creatures. The up-curved mouth is actually one of the many large water-worn ammonite fossils that are embedded in the Blue Lias, and these can be seen all over the rock platform on the shore. Two live common winkles grazing on the surface at low tide serendipitously look like eyes on the face.
