Stewart Michels a Fisheries Scientist with the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife holds Atlantic horseshoe crabs during a continuing population survey as the crabs come ahore by the thousands to spawn and lay their eggs on Pickering beach, a national horseshoe crab sanctuary near Little Creek, Delaware, May 20, 2008. The Atlantic horseshoe crab, part of the Atlantic coast ecosystem and a species more than 350million years old, return from deeper water each May and June to spawn and lay their eggs on these beaches at the new and full moon tides. The eggs provide essential food for as many as one million migrating shore birds that stop here to feed on the horseshoe crab eggs as their primay food source on their northward migration.
