21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Calico Crab on the shores of West Meadow Beach

As I reached the end of the tide pool I saw a blur of green go through the water. Upon further investigation I realized the blur of green was actually a crab and quickly got my camera out to get the shot
