Arrived at the beach early one Spring morning and witnessed a duel between two ghost crabs. Victory came after one of the crabs dismembered the other. The spoils were had by a passerby yellow-crowned night heron. The battle took place at Fort Desoto Park at a public beach.

Location: Fort Desoto Park, Pinellas County, Florida, USA
