    Thanks for all the positive feedback. There were a few of these crabs in the surf, I assume they were feeding. This one didn't seem to keen to run off and I think with this shot it had started charging the camera!

Thanks also for the constructive criticism from some. I agree that a slightly higher angle may have separated it from the background more and a bit of post processing to bring out the shadows would help too.

    Not sure I'd want to confront this at a 21mm setting LOL. A cancerous crustacean indeed. Well shot!

    That is either one big crab or you got too close for comfort!. Spectacular photograph.

    Very nice - like the way the crab fills the frame. Wish the camera angle were a touch higher to give the crab more separation from the background. How did you get so close? In my experience, these things usually run away before you can get near them.

    Impressions: Interesting subject in natural setting. Not pin sharp. High contrast scene. Subject needs some fill light or some dodging of the shadows to bring out detail of crab's face and legs.

    Beautiful image quality and a lovely low point of view make this a great photo.
