I took this macro shot of a Rock Scallop (Crassedoma giganteum) on the wreck of the Star of Scotland last Saturday on the Sea Divers trip. Notice the eyes on the ends of some of the tentacles. It is these eyes that help the scallop close when you hit them with a flashlight or your shadow passes over them. I caught this one just before it closed since it had already sensed my focus light.
