Scaring the Ghost

Ghost crabs aren’t known for being diurnal, so when I saw this guy scurrying across the sand one afternoon I felt I had to seize the opportunity and chase him down for a photo. At first he did his best to evade my pursuit but eventually stopped with his back to a dune, claws up, seemingly ready for a fight. He stared me down with his beady little black eyes until I snapped some pics and moved on. I’m sure he was relieved to get back into his dark tunnel and wait for the night.
