Description

Many dozens of these on the mudflats next to the outflow of the Kaikourai Estuary. Almost all of them were "paired" like this.

I caught these and continued to hike around for an hour and the male remained firmly clinging to the female.

I froze them, thinking the male would drop off, but he didn't, so I got the opportunity to photograph them just as they were caught!
