Despite its minute size, spotting this crawfish startled me as it was found along a trail far from Lake Michigan.

Spotted at Illinois Beach State Park on June 24, 2018.

Nikon D7000 1/60 second F/5.6 ISO 400 90 mm

Many Finns eat crabs at midnight. I've tasted, but I do not want more.

A fabulous image! I don't think that I have ever seen a crawfish in its own environment before. I wonder where he was going being so far from the lake. He looks ready to defend himself!
