    I have a thing for crabbie eyes. Augusts theme is " I only have eyes for you". Show us pics of your hermies with their beautiful gazes and mug shots!

    Contest ends August 28th.

    What's the prize this month? Well since eye's are my favorite, I thought I'd make it a bit more appealing to everyone. Hopefully we get alot of entries. Here's the prize

    Oh yeah, this is going to be an interesting contest. Those prizes are great and I want them. I'm going home tonight and looking through my hundreds of crab pics to find some to enter with. If nothing else, I may just have to take hundreds more this weekend.

    This contest is going to be hard to vote in. We only have 2 entrants so far and both are good!

    ooow! those are some nice prizes. I was inspired to get my camera out. . . until I saw the handiwork of these fabulous photographers! If my new crab Zamboni (PP) would show his face and I could get the shot, all your crabs would be put to shame 'cause he's such a looker. Wouldn't you know that the prettiest crab I have would never show his peepers in broad daylight. Gee now I have to enter to back up my big talk, huh?

    Okay, here goes:

    I'm not great at hermie photography but here's one that I have so far...

    [img width=259 height=300]http://members.cox.net/chissler/gotcrabs5.JPG[/img]

    Adding another one this morning...this was a hermie we found while we were crabbing (blue crabs!) at Oregon Inlet, NC last summer. You can barely see his little eyes...this guy visited with us for a little bit and then we took him back down to the water:

    Here's my entry. I was changing the water dishes and noticed that I was being watched.

    [img width=300 height=225]http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/froggz37/000_0448.jpg[/img]

    Here's the url for the pic so you can see it larger and much more clearly
    http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/froggz37/000_0448.jpg

    This is the ruggie that was white when I purchased him. In this pic he's giving me quite a look. (Note: the blue legtips were ones that regrew during his molt.)

    i love the prizes. my hermies are telling me it looks scrumptious!

    Just too bad I don't have a scanner, and there is no possible way for me to get the pic up on the web. =(

    I love the crab's eyes though. Very nice.

    you dont have to have a scanner--I dont--all you need to do is host your pics on a free hosting site..ex: photobucket.com---imageshack.com--imagecave.com and take the pic from your computer :cowboy_grin:

    I don't have any recent pics but I went through some files and came up with some entries that I think are appropriate! My crabs ALSO think the prizes look yummy. ALL of the pictures below are clickable.

    Here is my gigantic E, Fat B@stard who has been buried for about 2 weeks and hopefully molting (and totally lives up to his name). These pics were taken the day he came home with 11 other E tank mates (that was pricey trip). The first one looks like he's saying, "Mine, mine. It's all mine" (with that Daffy Duck voice going on). The second one looks like he's saying, "Brrr, that water is cold".

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    These pics are of my recently departed Lilo. I don't know what happened to her but it was the typical story of a Straw planting herself in the salt water dish and dying. I had taken these photos for another contest months ago but I know that Vicki LOVES the eyes in these pics, lol. It really looks like she's playing peek-a-boo. Dang, she was a pretty crab. I don't know which crab that last one is but it looks like he's saying (in a little tiny mouse like voice), "Hello? Where'd everybody go?".

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Lastly, and this one was just TOO good to pass up, is another of those Es, but a much smaller one. If you click on the picture to make it big and look on the left side of the pic. If you look close you can see part of a claw there. Now to me, that little crab looks terrified of that big ole claw in the food dish and it looks like he's backing up really fast and saying, "No pinch, NO PINCH!".

    [​IMG]

    Well, that's it, that's all I'll post. This contest is going to be tough to judge, especially with those really cute pictures from Herm-EZ. That first one of hers makes me want to PP my pants too...
