Hello my friends
Today post belongs to neither a bird nor a butterfly and flower. It is a new subject for me and it represents CRUSTACEA a relatively rare group on TN. This crab, Ocypode cursor is known as "Ghost Crab" or "Sand Crab" (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA: OCYPODIDAE). I captured it when walked on sandy beach of Göksu Delta, which is the richest bird are in Turkiye, with more than 350 bird species, in last weekend. Actually I looked for some Audouin's Gull (Larus audouinii) in this area and I saw the crab emerging its hole in wet sandy beach. I set up tripod and I took this macro shot from a distance of about 6-7m, by 600mm f/4 of Canon. I hope you will enjoy to see it.
Thanks to my friend Dr. Cengiz Koçak (Ege University, Faculty of Agriculture) for identification.

Değerli dostlarım,
Bugünkü fotoğrafım ne bir kuşa, ne bir kelebeğe ya da bitkiye ait. Bu benim için yeni bir konu olan ve TN'd nadiren rastladığımız CRUSTACEA (Kabuklular) grubundan bir yengeçtir. "Hayalet Yengeç" veya "Kum Yengeci" olarak bilinen Ocypode cursor (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA: OCYPODIDAE)'dur. geçtiğimiz haftasonu, Türkiye'de 350'den fazla tür ile en çok kuş çeşitliliğine sahip alan olan Göksu Deltası'ndaydık. Ada Martısı (Larus audouinii) görmek için sahil boyunda yürüyorduk ve birden önüme bu güzel ve ilginç görünümlü yengeç çıktı. Kumlu plajın ıslak kısmının hemen bitiminde kazdığı yuvadan çıkarak yürümeye başladı ve derken tripodumu kurup, birkaç karesini çektim. Her ne kadar öğle güneşi altında olsa da bize güzel pozlar verdi. Fotoğrafı, yaklaşık 6-7 m mesafeden Canon 600 mm f/4 objektifiyle çektim. Beğeneceğinizi umarak, ekliyorum.

Tür teşhisi için sevgili dostum, Dr. Cengiz Koçak (Ege Üniversitesi, Su Ürünleri Fakültesi)'a çok teşekkür ederim.

Salam Ahmet. I have never seen a crab looking like this my friend. It looks like an alien vehicle in the desert ready to take on the earth. So amazing with all the intricate details and the eyes popping out like signaling antennas. Really well done. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day shooting. Jusni

Merhaba Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
the first thing come across my mind is the angle you took. I could imagine how you took this very low and parallel capture of the crab.
Such a splendid view in clarity and sharpness. The blue eyes are really amazing.
you have captured it so professional.
Congratulations!

regards,
FooZi

Merhaba Ahmet dostum,
This is great!
A superb capture of a Ghost Crab. The low-level frontal POV is excellent and taken with fine sharpness and DOF with your long lens in superb lighting. The clean sandy-coloured BG is ideal too.
Tebrikler dostum ve cok tesekkür ederim.
Elenize saglik,
Ivan

Hello Ahmet,
A terrific view of this Crab taken from a low POV and showing fantastic details. Beautiful colours too - I love those eyes. It looks as if it's just about to attack you but I notice you were a safe distance away!!
Excellent work!

Hello.
This crab looks from out of our world. The low point of view and the tight composition work well. Fine background and colour.
Greetings.
