My greatest pleasure.
Judging by your location, I would guess that this is either Warren's Freshwater Crab, Potamonautes warreni, or else the Common RIver Crab, Potamonautes perlatus. It would help to see the back of the carapace. But, a very nice series of pictures... The crab looks alive.
Thank ForestDragon, will do.
Hi Mari, this is a wonderful series! I love the last image with the ray of light. You should move this to the Arthropods section.
