Crab perched in the mangroves

The boat ventured close to the mangroves, and there were crabs crawling around on the branches.  I would rather look at birds like yesterday's kingfisher than crabs, but perhaps the crabs are useful in providing food for large birds or small mammals.

We are showing photos of Bangkok, Thailand on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.  We loved it, and we hope you will enjoy our photos.

Amazing! I didn't know they could do that either.

They make good eating!

Perhaps wishing he was a bird.

Those guides do have sharp eyes.

The sharp focus on the crab and branch and blurring beyond them work nicely in this image, Dave.

That's a remarkable photo. Crabs have their place in the cycle of life. Their structure and mechanics can be fascinating.

I love this picture! I see crabs climbing all manner of rocks here, but have never seen one climbing a tree branch!
