What a wonderful combination of textures and colors! THere's something about this that makes the presence of the crab very unexpected - in a good way! :)

Thank you :o) I appreciate your taste of travel and the destinations you choose; you have a great taste! I know how hard it is to take photos especially without a tripod in the rainforest. So the burnt out parts are acceptible. Composition and details are very nice.
Wish you a good trip in Northumberland, you are going to a sea-birds heaven. Hope you come back especially with lots of good Puffin and Guillemot shots :o)

Nice bright crab and I like the lush environment he is living in. Lovely colours and an attractive composition.
I hope the weather is nice for your trip, I can't wait to see the puffin pictures

I remember seeing a nature film about these red crabs! Fascinating! You've captured this one very well in a nice wet environnment. Great sharpness and a nice composition.
Farne Island must be wonderful - I hope you'll have a good "shooting" time there!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Splendid shot. The ambience and the mood of the rain forest is illustrated well and the red crab is a special bonus. A wonderful place to be in for the sheer experience of it. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

how'd you manage to see him in the first place?!
Nice colour saturation.
I'm off to Northumberland in a couple of months, probably do the same.

This is a great image of this very interesting crab. I image it would be very difficult conditions in the rainforest to take photos. I haven't had an opportunity to try yet. This is nice with all the wet moss and vegetation.

Hi James, great shot of this Red Crab in the rainforest. It looks wet and very natural. The moisture and sun mix has contributed to the highlights problem but still it all looks very good with excellent detail and colour.

My internet connection had had some kind of a problem, James, and for four days I was off TN. Apparently, I missed quite a few pictures.
This is a brilliant capture of a red Crab from the rain forests of Australia. The degree of difficulty in terms of shooting conditions is substantial in all rain forests, as your note suggests. However, you have done a grand job here. The ambience of a rain forest is unmistakable in this shot.
Well done and TFS.

Excellent environmental portrait of the crab. Its color provides striking contrast with the lush green. I also like how the crab is about hold onto the branch to walk down. Best wishes,
