We spent the day kayaking. As we were leaving for the day at the boat launch, I found a dead crayfish washed up at the water's edge. It was fresh. I took pictures. We had a beautiful day. I also saw crayfish across the lake from the boat launch, near Limestone Point. Those were quite alive, scooting away as I waded. Harder to take nice pictures of them!
This is clearly a crayfish. It looks like a mini lobster. You can see the claws and 4 pairs of legs, the antennae.
Here you can see the pleopods. It looks like the first set are very small, so I'm wondering if it is male or female.
