camera critters





this lil guy was quite fun to watch scurrying around in the sand and quite easy to photograph. i can't tell you how long i've sat with camera posed just waiting for one of these guys to poke their heads back out of the hole i'd seen them duck in. :) to post your own critter or just veiw others...check out Camera Critters Meme.

Interesting contrast between the dark eyes and the light yellow of the crab. Pretty cool little critter.

It is fun to watch them walk. They keep going sideways making me wonder where they are actually heading to.
