[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sunny warm afternoons on Mediteranean coast of Spain bring on the shore rocks hundreds of crabs of all sizes that seem to enjoy a relaxing bask in the sun. They are very shy and suspicious to any suspect moving, disappearing fast into the rocks cracks when one tries to approach them. Taking pictures of them requires the "slooooow motion" technique. Well not a camera technique more that the photographer movement. I needed 10 minutes to gain about 2 meters and a right angle for this picture, of course after several failed trials.
Interesting how crabs walks all the time sideways. Never seen one walk straight or backwards...

Hi Petru.
This is an amazing catch from fine pov. The details are well defined against the muted background.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.
