is this considered wildlife?

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! :eek: ;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?? ;)

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! ;) ;) ;)

Nice shot Wiebe! I also found one with house, and it even can say Hi! But still wildlife (even protected!).
BTW - your guy, hmm... is that kind of gesture too ;D?!

Nice shot!
Looks like a difficult lighting situation with a small camera.
It may not be grand like a lioness on a kill, but it is wildlife. Small counts. You have to grab what you can, where you can.

Hi Sanj.
You could be right, but this is a very subjective thing, I think the ideal would be somewhere around 2/3 of the way to yours, ie 1/3 lighter than yours! Again purely subjective no absolutely correct answer! :)
Perhaps the shot owner was intending to show the scene as it looked to their eyes?

Cheers, Graham.
