Life Unnoticed

"Life Unnoticed" 
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.

They're so tiny~ I've heard of them but didn't know they were so small.
