[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is the one having taken it in the rock when being stroll in the coast in Okinawa this summer. The hermit crab was seen here and there of the sand pit and the rock. It requires patience in containing it in the photograph because the body is put away in a hurry in the shellfish when it is understood that the person approaches, and it begins to walk again when parting. It walks in the sand pit in the coast, and because it is possible to walk in a sudden rock, a dexterous animal. It is dug up tiny holes in the sand pit and it sleeps there, and it seeming is a place and be a rest room. The hermit crabs of other white, green, and a spotted pattern was able to be seen there.

Hola Mikio:

Primero muchas gracias por tus amables comentarios a mi fotografía y tambien por tu taller, donde aportaste tus conocimientos para mejorar mi toma, creo que es un trabajo diferente quizás algo arriesgado en luz pero también destaca y potencia algunos aspectos de la fotografía. No problem !!
Tu toma es interesante, me gusta el original ángulo empleado: trasero y en diagonal ! pero la profundidad de campo quedó algo justa. La luz algo subida en la parte delantera del cangrejo. Me gusta el fondo, los colores y la excelente presentación.

Un abrazo desde España: Josep Ignasi.

This is a wonderful image, Mikio. The colors and textures are amazing, and the angle of the light does a great job of revealing that. At first I was a bit troubled by the angle of the composition, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. Well done.
