Small But Mighty
One day this summer we saw hundreds of tiny critters running across the road on the way to our local beach. The closer we got, the faster they ran. Not a single one was crushed under a car tire. How could they do that? When I tried to get close to take a photo, they ran into the weeds.
Initially we thought they were spiders or tarantulas. Finally I jumped out of the car and captured one in a photo. That's when I saw it was a tiny crab. They're about the size of quarter, the small but mighty crab. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
