This scary guy came out of the sand as my kids were playing this week at the beach. I managed to snap a few shots before he took off towards the Ocean again. Took this with my Rebel XT and a Tamron 28-75 2.8 lens.

cool crab. where was this photo taken? my only suggestion would be to shoot from a lower angle. if you lay flat and shoot the crab from a low angle, it would really give a great perspective on it.

Yeah...I tried to drop down and shoot. This one was too fast for that though, he ran back to the water before I could get set. They really can RUN! This shot was taken on the beach in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, in the town of Duck.
