Ant Scurries Over A Baby Land Crab's Shell

This baby Land Crab was captured roaming about in our community here in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A few Ants had also found the baby Land Crab's presence rather fascinating and were witnessed moving about on its shell with abandoned bravado. I captured this Ant scurrying across the baby Land Crab's shell just behind its compound eyes.
