Default Land lobsters

I don't see them very often and this time I had plenty of time to click them.

They never stay still and almost always have their noses in the dirt looking for grubs and worms.

They are still fun to watch.

No awards here but just something to look at.

Nice picks. As far as i know they are armadillos, also called mulitas in Argentina.

Thanks for the comments. The armadillo's that I have seen have no fear of people.
While clicking these, two of them walked between my feet. They are fun to watch.

Cool shots. My first encounter with living armidillos was not to long ago. This one walked right up to me. I agree, they are such fun to watch.

Very nice, I have never seen that pose. All I ever see is their noses in the dirt. Great capture.
