Wikipedia Definition: shongololo – millipede (from Zulu and Xhosaukushonga, to roll up)

Long since gone, this shongololo (I almost forgot the word “millipede”; I have clearly been in South Africa too long!!) shell has been bleached by the sun.

I remember it being such a windy day, that photographing flowers was proving disastrous. At least this was staying still enough for long enough, before the wind whipped it way and out of sight.
