Hi Subhash,
Interesting specimen here, it's nicely detailed and clear. I would like to have seen a lower POV though which would have brought us face to face with the crab instead of looking down on him so much. Good job none the less.


WOW! That is some crab! He looks like a formidable creature!

Great close up of the crab, highlighting the colors and fine details. As to Terra Rosa, it was badly translated into Portuguese into Terra Roxa (which means purple). It is also typical of Brazil. Happy New Year!

Dear Subhash,
Where were you when taking this shot?underneath? Wherever, the crab does not seem to like you/your camera :-)

The sharp photo offers a multitude of interesting details.

I like the natural colours, and add your work to my theme "under and above the seas"

Thank you for sharing
Kind Regards from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
