Could that be mating activity, Luciano?
If you are certain these are male Crabs, then they are either practicing 'mating' or just having a wrestling match.:)
Anyway, this is an adorable scene and the fellows are looking at you as if wanting to be photographed.

Ciao Luciano, curiosa scena, ma sarà mica che invece di lottare stiano invece facendo qualcos'altro? Sicuro che siano due maschietti?, poi anche se fosse... Ottima al solito la qualità con splenddi dettagli nonostante una luce non facile, bravo, ciao Silvio

nice pair, TFS Ori

Hello Luciano,
I'm guessing one just scored either a touchdown, basket or maybe even a goal, depending on what sport they were playing, and they are just giving each other a belly bump like the pro athletes do on TV:)
Any how it is a wonderful overhead shot of these two in what appears to be an embrace of some sorts.
Tack sharp focus showing much detail and beautiful color and just the right exposure. I have never seen light yellow colored crabs such as this, very pretty. Great capture!!

Hi Luciano,
Nice image of these three ( with shadow) Crabs while mating ( I suppose).

Ciao Luciano,
super présentation de ces deux crabes! Belles couleurs bien que le sujet se présente bien difficile sur ce sable gris-brun.
joyeuses paques

FANTASTIC macro shot of this crabs.
