[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At first I took some tele shots of this fellow trying to get nearer and nearer. When instead of running away, like most of his freinds, he came towards me, I took some macro shots like this one. Looking at the pictures at home I realised how complex this creature is, with it's moving eyes and eating gear built in his mouth.

Very good close up and detail in this shot. The top is overexposed and a little distracting but I guess you couldn't ask the crab to turn around.

Very nice potrait and quite good considering the lighting direction. I wish to post some marine stuff after the fungi season finish :D
Thanks for posting.

Coincido con los conceptos de PDP Yohanan sobre una leve sobre exposicion y personalmente me hubiera agradado ver la totalidad del cangrejo hacia arriba.
De todas formas es un muy buen primer plano para TN.
Bien hecho.

I agree with the concepts of PDP Yohanan on slight one over expose and personally I had pleased to see the totality of the crab upwards.
In any case it is a very good close up for TN.
Well done.

That's an interesting shot, I'd like to have it for lunch.
Great details, great photo.
Thank you

Interesting photo, I thing not easy to realize.
Plenty of details of this crab. Thanks.

Light metering and framing could be better but the subject and composition are a genius pick ! It resembles the dramatic face of a Kabuki theatre mask.
