Cool Blue?

He let "Cray Cray" out in a nice leafy area. As a parent, it's cool when these moments for learning present themselves organically. Now, if we can only save the bees...
Back in June, while navigating our "sandy beach" by foot, I found the cast-off exoskeleton of a crayfish. While not particularly unusual, the big claws were blue!

It HAS been awhile...
