I think this is the largest crab I've seen on the beach. They usually scurry so fast when they see people but this one let me get pretty close before he headed to his hole.
The usual crowd at the north beach marsh: willets, marbled godwits, laughing gulls, some dowitchers close to the grass, one oystercatcher in the middle and the front of a royal tern in the back.
The laughing gull looking for a spot. The marbled godwits with their pink toothpick beaks really stick out.
I was watching these two oystercatchers trying to sleep and as I crept up near them the little dowitcher (I think this is a dowitcher) was trying to hide between the two of them.
This great egret stole this fish from a fisherman who was not paying attention to his bait fish. When will these guys learn.
A snowy egret and great egret waiting for a fisherman to turn his back.
This boat looked pretty beat up and abandoned near the northern tip of Fort Desoto.
