I was excited to capture this photo when we visited Rosh HaNikra, Israel. At first I declared: a scorpion! However, my son corrected me and said it was merely a crab. Good to have smart kids to set you straight.
Other animals have been posted around the world this weekend: visit at Camera-Critters.

Scary and shiny – actually quite intriquing ereading your oter blog posts now
It looks like something that would make me shriek upon seeing it!
Yep, that is definitely a little crab! I love the color of the rocks he’s sitting on too.
Hello again! Just had to drop a comment. This picture just has some very beautiful colors on it. It looks just like a painting and the comoposition with the little crap is very good. I liked it a lot.
Michelle, glad you are laughing. Sandy and Frumhouse, I didn’t mean to scare you!
Sara and Sys Op, thanks for noticing the colors around my crab. I really do need to get back to painting. But I’ll be putting some painterly photos this week.
Leora: Oh yes the shape does give it away, but it’s a nice critter capture regardless.
Wow, a fishing guy! I guess you would know a crab when you see one.
A very unique and REALLY NEAT critter! This is cool!
Interesting…and what a smart kid you have!
Great photo…so colorful. I, too, thought it was a spider until I looked closer.
I wasn’t sure what it was at first but then saw it was a crab. How cool!!! And against the multi-colored rocks it looks even cooler.
