This North American Lobster (Homarus americanus) has paused to fend me off. The North American Lobster waves its antennae to sense what's going on. Simultaneously it backs under the kelp and red seaweed for a flimsy cover. But the lobster is well protected with its tough carapace and strong claws. It is pictured hear among Bushy Red Weed (cystocloniam purpueum) and Common Southern Kelp (Laminaria agardhii) which has no mid rib. The weeds are perennial. The Lobsters are migratory to deeper water in the winter.
