Side Stepping Beach Creature

This is one little guy, perhaps an inch (25mm) foot to foot the long way. Another beach comber found it and we had to look too!

I would be fascinated with this little guy too! Creepy but fascinating! And love his little shadow on the sand too!

Cute little crab. Watch your toes.

Thanks for visiting my blog. You said you'd like to have the background out of focus but was having trouble getting that effect. The secret is to have your camera on macro setting, to put the center focus thingy right on what you want to focus, press the shutter halfway down, then move the camera around so that what you want to focus on is not dead center, probably. Press the shutter all the way in AFTER composing and you'll be amazed at how cool it can look. Hope this helps.

Great shot of this tiny fellow.

It is odd how they walk. You would think it took extra energy and would be inefficient. Great photo!

It's cute and they can easily hide underneath the sound too. Happy Sunday!
