Just A Little Crabby

I think this is the prettiest little crab I've ever seen.




This little crab's body is about as big as my thumbnail and it's a digger. It was in a tank where you could see the tunnels it dug in the sand against the glass, like an ant farm.



And this poor little thing, I realized while shooting it that it was missing a lot of its legs. The glass of the tank was sweaty and I was taking pictures with the lens in the clear spots of the glass but I like the hazy look around the edges.

Wow, I always thought crabs were kinda creepy, the that first one is very pretty :)

People With Cameras - It was pretty and I liked that it looked as if it was playing with its reflection.

I like the way that tunneling crab seems to be sparring with its own reflection, and I love the pink colors on it. All the crabs we have around here are drab like the second photo.

Neat! Think I have to visit an aquarium pretty soon!

John theberge - I was so glad I caught the crab with the reflection. I've never seen any this colorful before.

Klaus - I would LOVE to see your photos after a visit to an aquarium. You capture things so beautifully!
