Moment with Crabs

Apparently the crab is reading my mind. It looks up attentively to me, feeling naked but no whining, I watch it crawling nearer; it stops, and it stays. 

Is that a broad grin on its face? 


Only zooming in the LCD monitor, there I locate two tiny black dots in its green eyes.  I am wishing more.

Then I see many of them gathering around the mind reader. Before my next wish comes true, my wife calls to make a move. 

The crabs march away.


It is actually my wife the mind commander.

They are adorable! Here, people keep hermit crabs as pets, but these are much better looking.

Aren't all wives mind commanders? I'm impressed that your wife could command the crabs to march away.

Marvelous crab series.
That fellow eyeballing you is saying to his friend, "Up THERE...THAT is a really odd-looking creature!"

(With an odd name..Rainfield--grin!)

Very attractive little sand crabs... and, of course, I don't think it's a bad thing sometimes to have your wife command you!

Yes, they are reading your mind and, I fear, they may be reading mine too. ;)

Pretty good. I've never seen a crab myself.

They are a bit creepy to be honest!

Were these shot on the beach or while trekking? Pretty unusual to get crabs posing like that when approached.
Great find!
