Fiddler Crab

By fishiee
OK so the Little Grebe bombed!

I was in the Algarve a couple of months back and was quite surprised to find fiddler crabs there. I assumed there were only found in more exotic locations, and reminded me of the shore crabs I used to see when I was fishing in Angola years ago and I had to bury the bait in the sand so the crabs wouldn't keep stealing it. It didn't take many minutes for them to realise it was buried and would start to dug it up, so the sand merely bought me a couple of minutes delay before they nicked the bait!

This is my first crab upload, and probably my last too!

It's a good one, whether your first or last. Good detail.
