Fairy Shrimps

 

          by Clyde H. Eriksen

 

The graceful, almost etherial, fairy shrimps swim often in cloud-dense numbers, under the sunlit or rain splashed surfaces of temporary pools.  And although any of the kids amongst us who journey to the beach certainly know the "sign of the sea," the starfish, few of us who splash through the water and mud of a rain pool see or are familiar with the "sign of temporary waters," the Fairy Shrimp; 200 pages, MRP, 1997.
