I Heart Macro: Tiniest Crab

This is my first I Heart Macro in a while. I've had these pictures saved but not the time to post them.

Following the death of my FIL, Pat and I decided to head to the beach for a bit of soothing. While there, I spotted this odd bit washed up on the beach.

For a bit of scale purposes, I placed a bottle cap in the frame. Isn't that the teeny, tiniest crab you've ever seen!?

  2. Oh my goodness, I have never seen a crab so tiny! The piece that the crab is sitting on is very interesting too.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  5. Hope, that is a great photo, but what is it? To me it looks like half of a brain that washed up from Davey Jones' locker! LOL I had one of those tiny little crabs hitch a ride inside of my bathing suit bottoms once a long time ago when I was a teen, it was the first time I went to Ft. Walton Beach.

  9. Took me a while to find the little thing. Like Tracy, I thought the whole thing was the crab.

  10. Y'all, I'm so sorry I didn't zoom in a little better for you to identify the crab. I thought the arrow would direct you to it, but I didn't do a very good job of that.
    As far as using the bottle cap. I promise we were not drinking out of bottles on the beach, that was just what I had available at the bottom of my beach bag. We wanted to use a coin for scale, but we left all our money in the car. So. . .a beer bottle it was! ;)
