fiddler in the morn

this is a fiddler crab, they have one big claw they use to fight with and one little embryonic claw. when they loose a fight and with it their claw the little one quickly begins to grow so the crab can defend itself. they’re tiny little things no more than an inch or two across and move in casts of thousands.
i spent hours squelching around on the mud flats chasing these tiny little crabs, getting stuck and loosing flip flops trying to get this picture i must have looked faintly ridiculous.


About ptrivers

I'm Patrick here are some of my pictures. I love taking pictures of things, mainly of things rather than people, i think this is because i hate having my picture taken and don't want to put other people in the same position. Also i hate asking folk to pose for shots i think it can really play up to peoples vanity. Still thats not to say that i wont someday take pictures of people, i just don't fancy it right now. I lived in London for about six years, there's just so much happening at a really hectic pace, almost out of control, teetering on the edge of chaos and oblivion, i miss it everyday the people and the places. I now live in the lake district which is impossibly beautiful and an incredibly inspiring place to be. The pace of life is still and sleepy a far reach from my previous life, but interjected with moments of exhilaration and adrenaline, its an interesting combination. If you like my photos or want to ask me any questions or perhaps would even like to buy some prints then please get in contact.
