Judy Royal Glenn Photography
My family and I went on the beach while we where on St. Simons Island, Georgia to watch the forth of July fireworks. A lot of my extended family members were there too, and we had a large row of chairs set up to watch the fireworks.
The sun would be setting before the fireworks, so I wanted to walk the shore looking for birds to photograph. As I was almost back to where my family was sitting, a family saw me photographing, and they asked me if I saw the tiny horseshoe crabs. The little boy had one in his hands. I asked him if he could hold it up for me so I could photograph it.
I was amazed at the tiny little creature he was holding. I told the father I must have killed 100 of them walking back. I never saw them in the sand. As I bent down and look closely at the sand, I saw them moving around everywhere.
When I got back to our seats, I had my daughter hold the horseshoe crab, so I could take a video of it from my cell phone.
