Cathryn Blanco, of Pensacola, was visiting the islands for the first time when her group found a large lightning whelk on Captiva on May 3, just past the Blind Pass Bridge. The largest one that she has found along the Gulf of Mexico, she is pictured comparing it to a normal sized shell. With Blanco was Mary Blanco and Jeanette Wadsworth, who also posed with the huge shell.
