Great Blue

This fella showed up in one of the beds we were preparing for clam seed.  Blue crabs are at the northern most part of their range on Cape Cod and this far up the bay they are pretty rare.  Last year when we were shaking out clam nursery trays in the shallows a HUGE blue reared up out of the water at us clapping its claws together threateningly- I'm saying it had an 18" claw-span.  Now legend, (Jim wasn't there and makes doubting remarks about the behemoth) the Great Blue hasn't been seen since...until today when we ran into his baby brother...
Not wanting to anger the Blue Behemoth we set this little guy back down gently
