is this considered wildlife?
« on: February 21, 2018, 08:13:25 AM »
I took this in December, while walking with my wife on the beach. I don't bring my big camera to the beach, but I did have a powershot in my pocket.

Hi Kodakrome.
Nice shot, interesting colouration of the claws!
Was it wild? I assume yes!
Was it alive? Again assume yes!
Wild and signs of life= wildlife!  :o ;D

Cheers, Graham.

If he is a very private crab and you scared of his next meal, I would say " WILD???? I was bloody furious!"

Hi kodakrome,

Wildlife traditionally refers to undomesticated animal species.

I assume this crab is undomesticated....So yes, it's wildlife.  :D

Nice shot!  :)

One day I was looking for domesticated crabs on the beach (with pants off course ;)) and didn't find any!
But there was a lot of wildlife there...

I did find one with his pants (or house) on - so this is not wildlife?? ;)

Wildlife until he hits the steamer and then the plate. Once that happens he's just dinner. :)

Kodakrome - Great fun shot; but wait... didn't you see the other thread on the 4000D?  It was determined that powershots - especially superzoom versions - are unacceptable.  You shouldn't carry one!  You are supposed to use either your smartphone or SL-2 with telephoto lens!  ;)  ;)  ;)
