These are not great pictures. To make them as good as I did, I had to work long and hard... :lol:

What makes them interesting, is that this is the same injured Loon that I posted last week, shot from near a third of a mile. These were shot from 150 feet, and don't look half as good....

This image is of an old and large Horseshoe Crab. This one must be very old and was twenty inches long, and so covered with barnacles, that you can't tell what it is.

Actually, "Horseshoe Crabs," are not crabs at all, but living fossils, if I recall, related to trilobites.

This one was stranded on the beach, and his impressive size and covering made me toss him back into the sea. To freeze the action, I jacked my speed up to 80

The mating season is dying down, but you can see both living and dead ones stranded all over the beaches. They are not edible, although the Seagulls will disagree...
