Macro Monday - Soldier Crabs

I have been attacked by a rather ugly virus – biological rather than computer – so I have not been doing much other then sleeping and breaking out into bursts of sweating and shivering!  Normal service will be resumed when my immune systems gets its act together and beats up on the aforementioned virus.
These are some soldier crabs from Magnetic Island – they were good fun to watch as they marched about the sand!
You can find more macro pictures at Macro Monday.
Enjoy the close ups.

Hope you feel better and get fully well soon! That is truly a sight to see, how big is an individual crab. They are beautiful. I remember watching for a long time the also lovely fiddler crabs, whose one pincher is so big almost bigger than itself!

Neat photos--I can see why they are called army crabs! Hope you feel better.

Estes caranguejos são bonitos, mas certamente não foram eles a causa dessa doença.
Talvez outra virose desta novas que aparecem e atacam qualquer pessoa.
Desejo que recupere rapidamente.
