Toasted crab

The summer sun either bleaches or blackens most things that have finished out their days on the beach. The purple shore crab is an exception; his colours become even more vivid as they bake than when he was running about. This crab molt almost looks alive.

Crab, drift log, and black eelgrass remains.

There's still a hint of green in the hinge of his pincer.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
