    Here are some more shots I took while in Gulf Shores (I had also taken a few sunset shots that I posted in the Loney Herring thread). This crab was funny to watch, and was very protective. He was about 8" wide or so.

    I really like these!
    The flowers at the end have such a popping color to them.

    Awesome crab shots! I'm thinking Jack Sparrow right now.

    Thanks Heather! Yeah, we saw thousands of them, but they were all about 1 or 2 inches long, and this grand daddy came out of the sand. I definitely watched where I stepped from then on :lol:.

    May I ask what lens did you use to capture those photos? They are pretty sharp

    It was my Canon 75-300mm F/4-5.6 USM lens. Seems to be a decent lens for the money as long as you have good light (such as a bright sunny day at the beach).

    Too bad about the wilting top flower in your flower shot. I love the little crab guy though!
