Macro Monday Mini Crab

DSCF0474


While sifting for shark's teeth we came upon several small crabs. I thought this one was pretty tiny, until I saw. . .

Now he's tiny! These were taken with my little waterproof point and shoot.

Can you tell he's no bigger than a penny? It's so funny to see something that small get all defensive, lol.

Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign Mr Linky. MM started on Sept 29, 2008 - Thanx to all of you for helping make it such a fun start to the week! :)

  8. Yes, what is this point and shoot camera called, I wonder, and waterproof, too!
    To have captured so tiny a creature, with such a expressive reaction, is a miracle!

  9. Very cute little guy. It's kind of like a tiny dog that thinks it's as big as a mastiff. Posturing and confidence are everything. Nice photos, especially with a point and shoot
