Yes, I Feel Thankful for Crabs

This Thanksgiving weekend has brought clear weather and extreme minus tides during daylight hours to the coast of northern California, and I feel mighty thankful for the opportunity to catch up with my crustacean compadres.

I especially love the polka-dot-clawed, human-friendly, non-pinching purple shore crab (Hemigrapsus nudus), as they don't seem to mind hanging out in my hands.
