Small shore crab with purple and cream markings. Purple spots on the claws.
Spotted at Fort Worden State Park.
Great colors Brian. Thanks for sharing.
It really took me a while to " see" it...your description of purple claws helped!
Thanks for your kind comments Neil and Saturniidae27. It's amazing what molted colors and markings can do for camoflauging.
Nice colors there Brian. When I first took a glimpse of this spotting, I couldn't see the crab :)
So colourful. Beautiful spotting, Brian.
