Feeling Crabby

By ChiliMan
Gosh…can’t believe it’s been a week since I last uploaded!

Thank you all so much for the votes and comments on ‘Little Troublemaker’. I especially loved reading about the various sports in which people were involved Smile Made me also miss badminton and squash something awful.

Alrighty…here’s something I entered into last month’s EPZ competition themed ‘SEASIDE’.

And don’t worry…no crabs were harmed in the making of this shot. They were inspected by my bro (that’s his hand) and my nephews and were then allowed to scuttle back into the sea.

Love his eyes, Andrew, and isn't he well marked Smile. Good to see you back again. Carol

Nice one, a story in the background.
A bit small for supper so I hope you let him go. He has a pleading look...

Lovely beastie. I'd like to see the colour version too, and that colour popped one that Lillian suggested.

a plate with a bit of side salad !!

The crab is a fine speckled specimen and forgive me, but I got a chuckle out of the knee pants and long stockings. A refinement seldom seen here in the wilds of BC. TG

he looks a bit peeved but then I wouldn't have blamed you for testing him for dinner ... I know, i'm a heathen. I think it is a miracle that in 52 years I haven't been banned from public aquariums because I can't help thinking of pans, woks and grills. It shows, my mouth waters.
great shot.Wink

The mono really is unexpected for this, and works beautifully.
