Wordless Wednesday ~ The Standoff ~

I know it is Wordless Wednesday but you have to realize I saw this cool crab from quite a distance while walking on Sunset Beach during low tide. He never moved the entire time I was walking towards him. Naturally, I thought he was a either sleeping or you know (a goner)...

 

He/She Crab

So as I advanced on him/her, I expected him/her to take off, but he/she didn’t!! I decided to have a conversation with him or is it a her?  It was amazing!! The cool crab never moved and allowed me to take it’s picture while telling him/her what a cool crab he/she was!!  Decided to get a little closer and it took off for the dunes....

Wow, great photo. Don't you just love those close encounters with wildlife. They usually happen to me when I'm without my camera.

Craig, maybe this would be a good photo for a caption contest. I suppose I would say "Do you believe in Sandy Claws?"

VB ~ Thanks for the feature!!

Team Honeycutt ~ These type of crabs live on our beaches, they typically come out at night only. The main reason I chatted with this cool crab was to ask him/her what were they doing out in the daytime. I think we call them ghost crabs. Very cool crab.
