Crayfish

I was approaching the quarry on Thursday morning when I saw a crayfish on the road. It does not surprise me to see frogs or turtles or snakes on the road, especially when they are dead, but seeing a live crayfish was a surprise.
Perhaps the heavy rains overnight dislodged it from the river, though, it was a considerable distance from the river. I have no idea where it was going. It probably wandered around on the road until a vehicle ran it over.
