Crab Carapace and claw

All you can eat…

It’s always interesting when you post an image like this and get reactions. When I shot this I was struck by the way that random chance had arranged the shell and the claw. They’re obviously from different crab species and the victims were also of different levels of maturity. I liked the layout, the colour and the texture of the paving slab.

First comment back (not via this site). Looks like that crab really hit the pavement hard. It’s embedded. That got me thinking about the way the Beagle 2 Mars Lander ended up being drilled in the martian surface…
