Macro Monday Hermit

IMG_8142

When I stumbled upon this hermit crab it made me remember a time I vacationed with my grandparents along the gulf and brought home a bag of shells.  When we got home, I dumped the shells out on the porch to show my cousin and one started crawling away!  We both jumped screaming, lol.  Cut me some slack though, I was only 8 at the time.

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 MckLinky. :) MM started on Sept 29, 2008 - THANX to all of you for helping make it such a fun start to the week!

    Cute little guys. I'd scream a little today if part of a shell collection started crawling away.
