    Too bad we didn’t get a photo of the crab who traveled home in my kayak from Sandy Hook last night! He was cute (except when he was wriggling around in the cockpit, which wasn’t EXACTLY endearing…)

  2. You and their mothers are probably equally fond. :)I agree with you they are beautiful, but I am not sure I would want to get up close and personal with any of them. Mind you, the same would apply to tigers.

  15. I opened your post with great trepidation. I was expecting arachnids. I’m glad I didn’t see any.

    Like most here, I was surprised at how endearing that little creature is. In your photo. Repeat. In your photo.
    Left to my own devices, I wouldn’t have even have noticed him!
