Red Knot & Horseshoe Crab (inverted)

Some folks who viewed a previous posted Red Knot picture have asked what a horseshoe crab looks like (foreground inverted). The relationship between the two species is unique (see explaination on previous picture). Ironically the horseshoe crab is a "cousin" to spiders not crabs. They are truly living fossils. May they both survive.
