Fiddler on the sand

Sand Fiddler Crab (Uca pugilator) in Chatham, MA

Fiddler crabs are known for their "waving displays" when courting females — a male waves its oversized claw while standing near its burrow entrance.  Although this male crab isn't waving its large left claw, it seemed appropriate to discuss this topic as we're waving goodbye to New England and returning to California tomorrow.  We wish the two coasts weren't so far apart!
