Crab Apple #3-Different Green Crab

Here is a green crab that I tyed by looking at the pattern of the carapce in Roberts book and it's shape which is different from the Brown Crab.. I found a certain clump of feathers on my whole partridge which mimicked it perfectly... two loops on the carapace that move to the head in opposite directions and the green foam shows though lightly. The second picture gives you scale as compared with the brown crab.. when I tyed the original crab last year it was a green crab and that's why I named it Crab Apple.
