Crab on a stick

In what will be the first of probably way too many photos from my summer vacation, I give you “Crab on a stick.” This guy was wandering across the drive way at the beach house we stayed at in Ocracoke, part of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Wave a lolly pop stick in front of him, and presto! Crab on a stick!

  3. Noster says:

    Very creative work.
    A appreciate it so much.

  4. Betsy says:

    That is too funny!! But where is his other claw?

  5. James Lee says:

    Thanks for the comments, all!

    Betsy - this was one of those crabs with one huge claw and one tiny one. His small claw is the yellow arm on the opposite side, and has a few grains of sand stuck to it, so you can barely tell it’s a claw at all.

    That’s pretty impressive :) my contract doesn’t expire until next June *sob*

    (sarah mia is replying to my tweet about this post where I talked about how sharp the detail is for an iPhone 4 photo)

    You could always do what I did. Take a perfectly good iPhone 3Gs and submerge it in water so that the screen no longer works, then figure out how to creatively obtain a new phone (regardless of the contract).

    This photo was really unique and it is quite funny and cute. And you captured it right and very clear. I wonder what kind of crab is that, only one big claw and it has tiny one. Can we eat that kind of crab, it looks delicious!

  13. James Lee says:

    Oh, he just fell off and scuttled away.

    Too small to eat - his body was smaller than a golf ball.

  15. James Lee says:
