I recently moved to Ireland from the west coast of the United States. I am posting photos of the wild and wonderful things I encounter.

Don't get crabby
I think this little one is called the Common Shore or green crab. They are exactly the color of the rocks & seaweed. I was only able to see it when it moved. Some people use these for bait. Shore fishing can land you some plaice, mackerel, flounder, bass, pollack, turbot and cod. They even catch sharks, skates and rays out here! I'm trying to decide what kind of fishing pole to get; a salt water fly rod, or a medium fixed spool. Probably won't be using these little crabs for bait though. They're kinda cute.
