The Bay is a place to witness amazing things that nature plays out like a fine symphony. This blue crab was skirting the shore trying to find a way into the marshes. It backed away, and left the water! After a few amazing shots, it got to go on its way. A far better fate than sometimes happens, though laughing gulls watched with keen interest.
Ensure that Bob and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights and places like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint—the plan to Save the Bay and its waters!
