Fiddler crabs


The fiddler crabs are out en masse at Range Point again! If you approach very quietly you can hear the clack-clack-clacking of their tiny claws.


Nice try, little fellow. I mighta missed ya except for that huge claw. Cool camouflage technique though.

Oh DJ, your photography is just beautiful! I browsed through your flicker pics. Just amazing! and that cute little crab, I would hate for him to get ahold a' my toe!!! Thanks for sharing your art of photography with all of us.

Is it mating season, DJ? I really don't know anything about them. Hmmm, maybe I should check the thoughtful link you provided...

Hey, PJ. Actually these are the itty-bitty babies - and a bit late in the season from what I've seen in past years. Check out this post of mine from March of 2007 and you can see some of the tiny creatures I discovered earlier in the season during low tide at Range Point.
