Ghost Crab on Cape San Blas beach, Florida

There are lots of ghost crabs on Cape San Blas beach at  Saint Joseph peninsula state park in Florida. At first the crabs would just run down their hole when I got close and I thought I’d surely never get a picture. But if I didn’t get too close and didn’t move too much they would stay out and I was fortunate enough to get a few pictures. Ghost crabs are entertaining to watch and they get a lot bigger than the one in this photo but I found out from a park ranger that they are a threat to turtle’s nests.
