This image was taken while I was visiting Galveston Island State Park in Texas. Great part of the beach was covered with these crawling little guys. As soon as I would get close to them, they would bury themselves back under the sand. The crabs in the image are known as Fiddler Crabs they are easily recognized by their distinctively asymmetric claws. Found in mangroves, salt marshes, and on sandy or muddy beaches, fiddler crabs are easily recognized by their distinctively asymmetric claws.

  • I’m glad you like it! I It was a little bit difficult to shoot these little guys. They crawl really fast into their little sand holes.

  • Thanks, I wouldn’t want to be snapped with those claws. Unless you try to touch them they won’t attack you. Besides they run away when you try to get close. But the claws are impressive!
