snail_vs_hermit_by_al_lau

Nevermind about The Avengers Infinity War. Who will win this epic battle? The snail or the Hermit Crab?

On the note of bottom feeders, I came across the smallest crab in the world while I was trying to catch (and release) a Largemouth Bass, featured in my recent video, First Bass of the Year. Plus, my cat makes a short cameo. Let me know if you like. Thanks!

I was in Cape Cod, Massachussetts, last week. Wading in the bay, I noticed many a critter at my feet. It fascinated me how busy an ecosystem it was down there. Snails clung to rocks. Hermit crabs bumped into each other. Crabs did the sideways thing. All the while, the horseshoe crabs were the most graceful, not in any rush to be anywhere. The lowtide revealed this seashell extravaganza.

My cartoon drawing is inspired by those little guys.
