Sand Crab

Scenes of North Padre Island

While at North Padre, both Dan and I saw several sand crabs. I wanted to capture one so bad. Dan spied this little fellow and I quickly snapped a picture with my macro lens. Can you see him?

This little fellow was so brave. He froze there never moving a leg. I slowly got closer and I snapped another picture.
I got even closer and snapped another picture.
I eventually got so close to him that my lens were probably about three inches away from the fellow. The following picture was the one I was really shooting for. I'm mighty pleased with my efforts.
