The happy fishmonger (2)

This guy at the Washington Fish Market, where we hadn’t been for like 10 years, was just great, displaying his blue crabs for me, and many of them. He was explaining how one could tell the difference between male and female crabs, something about the females having “fingernails.”

Wonderful, enthusiastic portrait. Carl is correct, in humorous way.

The bottom of the male looks like the Monument (left hand) and the bottom of the female looks like the State Capitol (right hand)!!!!
