Great eye stalks. He is ready for a battle with you, ouch ouch ouch :-)

Thanx Alina & Derek.

Your right Derek! These fellas usually scoot away as fast as they can then dig a hole in the sand quicker and more efficiently than any backhoe. I got lucky with this standoff!

He's got a right to be angry Alina. It's his beach! We're just intruders. ;)

Lolol Marty, what's it say when something that usually runs away is willing to stand it's ground against you? $10 on the crab!

Hi Guy. ;)

The ghost crabs are a lot quicker in the sand and below it. They don't have much to fear. I believe this little crab stopped to strike a noble pose.
