Crawdad

Look what I found crawling through the yard this morning. At first glance I thought it was a scorpion and then you can't help but think "a lobster?". :-)

I haven't seen a crawdad in our yard in quite a long time. When we first moved into our house, we had rain by the buckets and so we had lots of crawdads. This season has been very rainy so I should have expected to see them return. When my mom was here visiting one year, we went out to the yard to try and find them, she suggested we catch them and eat them. I suggested we NOT do that.

This little guy was very angry with me for trying to take his picture... I think he snarled.

Between the crawdads and the possums(?) you'd think you lived out in the boonies of Louisiana.
