Friday Crab Blogging - Guest Appearance

We are pleased to present art work from the legendary Daniel of Across the Pond.

This is an excellent rendition of a blue crab (Callinectes sapidus, from the Greek calli="beautiful", nectes="swimmer", and Latin sapidus="savory")

This is Dan's "Cartoon Crab." The eyes have been brought down to the main torso and we have a mammalian mouth. However the construction of the articulated claws seems to be superior to the Real Crab above.

Crabs. The great Uniters.

What fabulous crabs from Daniel. I don't know which one I like the best as they are both so excellent.
