[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another of my pictures taken on the Galapagos. This is a Sally lightfoot crab. These brightly coloured crabs, the scavengers of the coast, are unmistakable along the rocky shores. They will feast on anything they get their claws on, from sea-lion placenta to other crustacea, including their own kind, and have an important role to play keeping the shores clear of organic detritus. The young ones are small and dark, difficult to be spotted by seagulls.

The focus isn´t 100% accurate - i think he might be to quick. But the colors are incredible. Very nice shot!

hele mooie foto Liesbeth,
Hele mooie capture hier, het is echter jammer dat hij en tikkeltje onscherp is, maar ik denk zelf dat dit komt door de snelheid. verder vind ik de foto erg mooi,
goed werk.

Great colours, but a little soft - possibly faster speed ISO or shutter required. Well done though. Tim

Intéressante composition photographique pour ce superbe crabe. Très belles couleurs mais il manque de netteté...

I like this composition and color. Like the guys said, the focus is not tac sharp, but I still enjoyed the image.

Well done and thanks for posting.
