M.E. Edge of Milton sent this stunning photograph of horseshoe crabs at dawn on Broadkill Beach. The trails are a late-spring reminder that it’s almost spawning time. If you see a horseshoe crab upside down on the beach, wiggling its legs or moving its tail back and forth, consider flipping it by holding the sides of the shell. It won’t bite you, and you’ll be saving his or her life while aiding the continuation of this ancient species, which has remained essentially the same for 445 million years (wikipedia).
Photographers should submit work to email@example.com for consideration in the Community Photography Showcase. Please include your name, phone number and where the photo was made. Photos published in our midweek print edition will also be posted at www.capegazette.com.
