    Thanks for all the nice comments. As I have said before, this is a great place to visit and explore if you are able. A photographer and nature lovers delight.

    Probably the most eye catching and remarkable photo of them all.

    Amazing colour and detail. I'm surprised he came out to take a peek at you. In my favourites.

    Just coming back to comment again because this is the shot that has stayed in my mind since I voted.

    Very impressive creature - looks even more so in a tighter crop. Almost seems to be over-saturated, though from what I've now read about them, it's probably not. Nice shot!

    Beautiful shot! The colours of the crab are brilliant and really pop against the neutral rock. Composition and focus are spot on.

    So sharp, so beautiful to look at. I'm jealous!

    Oh wow, what a fantastic shot! Colors are extraordinary, although his eyes look more lavender to me :-). I'm not sure if you desaturated the colors of the rock, but the crab stands out so perfectly. Really beautifully done and the focus is good too.

    So much beautiful colour hidden away in the rock. Good find.

Please take a look at the three opinion polls in the Forums under 'Site Talk'. They are only open for another three days. Even a vote for 'No Opinion' or 'None of the above' would be helpful. Thanks.

My apologies if you already received this invitation in the Main challenge. I'm simply trying to get everyone's opinion registered before the polls close in three days.

    What a great shot. I love the contrast between the bright colors of the crab and the grey of the rock. The pitted rock face makes an interesting background too.
