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.
