[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is taken in the mud tidal flat in along the Edogawa drainage canal. The mud tidal flat spreads out under the iron bridge of Tōzai Line near Myōden Station. This place is full of crabs, as long as it overlooks. If I approaches just for a moment, figures will be hidden rapidly in a hole. A shell is an oblong quadrangle with about 40mm width and is covered with a granule. It has a long optic stalk and fits in the hollow of the eye of the front tip of a shell. The male scissors leg is greatly developed. It is distributed over the mainland of Japan south of Aomori, the Korean Peninsula, China, Taiwan, Singapore, etc. It inhabits to the mud flat near the mouth of a river of an inner bay, and dips and eats the organic matter in mud moving its scissors.

Dear Mikio
Great shot, and I add your work to my theme "under and above the seas and lakes"

Good focus also under water, showing the viewer all the details sharply. The colours are natural. Your notes are interesting.

You must have tip toed to avoid the animal hearing you come and disappear :-)
Thanks for sharing.
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
