[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First of all, thanks to all the people who have commented my first picture.
Here's a new picture of Gabon, a sand crab. You can't imagine how hard it is to take a picture like this one without a zoom and when the (living) crab keeps running away...

Hi Olivier,
Welcome to TrekNature!
Congratulations on this macro. It must have been hard to take this photo...sand crabs do run away fast into their little holes. You've done really well. The composition is good and the detail is nice and sharp. Well done. Keep up the good work!

Hello Olivier,

Tu as été plus rapide que speedy Gonzales. Bravo.
Bonne prise. Très belle photo.
Juste que la photo est trop lumineuse. Un petit traitement avec AP CS s'impose pour en faire ressortir les détails et surtout la couleur du petit sprinteur. Effet garanti.

Merci de partager avec nous tes photos

Hi Olivier,
You must be Speedy Gonzales yourself for catching this sand crab with such sharp details, Great job. The colors could be brought out a bit more to show the beauty of this little critter. I made a workshop for you. Hope you like it. Thank you for sharing this interesting shot, and a very warm welcome to TN. : )

Excellent composition ! The choice of wide angle provided for an interesting view on the shoreline in the background that indeed gives plenty of space to the crab for his sprinting. The subject is well captured with interesting details on its "eyelashes". I like the pastel tone in your picture, nevertheless colour contrast could be a twinkle bit stronger. Thanks for showing, Patrick
