F4, 1/750, ISO 100, 136mm, taken at The Pier in St Petersburg FL about 11:30AM. These are styrofoam balls/floats like are sometimes used on crab traps and other things. I am not up on what they are exactly used for; I don't know if they mark the crab traps or if they keep them off the bottom of the ocean. These were used for decorative purposes around the pier. They were strung like beads on a wire and were used like a rail.
