This little creature attempted to stall my morning hike! We’ve had rain, rain, & more rain. The river’s cresting is anticipated by Sunday bringing many creatures out of their home. While rounding a curve on a trail at the local wildlife refuge ‘Cameron' popped out of nowhere to the middle of the trail, claws erect. We danced together for a bit. He had nice footing, but there’s something about those claws that gave me the creature creepies!...btw...Cameron is officially known as a Paninin Mudbug for those who care. I'm currently finishing my naturalist certification & have been memorizing more crayfish than I ever thought possible.
