Don’t Be Crabby…

I would like to introduce to you guys a “Atlantic Ghost Crab” also known as “Sand Crab” or “White Crab”.  I came across him at the beach in Dominican Republic.  This little guy was so brave, that even though I kept coming closer he stood his ground and didn’t budge. So, that made him a perfect model for a photo shoot.

F/5.6, 1/500, ISO 250.

Interesting Fact: Atlantic Ghost Crabs can hold oxygen in their air sacs for about six weeks. The crab has club-shaped eyestalks and it boasts of a 360° vision. This helps it see and catch insects that are even in mid-air.  ( http://www.animalspot.net/ghost-crab-sand-crab.html )

  1. Love it! they surround me at the beaches here in Maui at times… and have become my friends…. Great shot! heart to Heart Robyn

  2. Thank you for liking “Midsummer.” I enjoyed looking at this cute little crab. He is much better looking than the little crabs I used to see when I lived in Florida. I like the interesting Atlantic Ghost Crab facts too. Nice post! 🙂

  3. that’s a really good crab picture! i tried taking a picture of a crab once, they all kept running away, sadly. 😦 gotta say i love your titles! and i really appreciate how you put info about not just the f-stops and shutter speed, but also the ISO you used. 🙂

  4. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
