That is a very cool series of "action" shots.

Technicals are up to your usual high standard too.

Super.

Great collection of images! I love the idea of capturing an event over a series of individual images.

What time period are we looking at here?

Many thanks rnabholz, Radazz, hkv and McConkey

They are faster (when they want to) than one generally thinks - probably about 15 to 20 seconds from first to last image.
Will see if I can put up a short video

Good images and video. Rare that one can capture such good images of the pseudopod.

Very beautiful series, with very nice depiction of the (top, I think) surface of the shell. I was pleasantly surprised that the top of the shell (if I am right) and the pseudopod were in the plane of focus. Very nice!
