Hermit Crab goes walk-abouts

One of the recent additions to our little marine aquarium was a hermit crab.  He turned up in a chocolate brown periwinkle shell.  A couple of days later he had upgraded to a dogwhelk shell.  

The other day I spotted him, out and about and very active – which is unusual.  I snapped some video in action and it was so fascinating that I just kept rolling.

The camera is a but shaky — couldn't be helped.  Focus isn't great — I just wish the camera could get closer.

Stop Motion

Had a first play with stop motion animation the other day with JP.  We had a thoroughly good time together.  Seeing an otherwise inanimate object come to life is quite enchanting.
