Unusual subject and POV. The colors are just mesmerizing and the shapes very artistic. Who would of though a crab could look so good? Great job!!

Never got to congratulate you on the finalist, Anita, but even better because now he has GOLD! I had sneaking suspicion we would see him again - he is just too weird and wonderful to pass up! HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!

An absolutely incredible capture! The detail is extraordinary along with beautiful color! Because most people don't have the opportunity (nor would be brave enough to take it! :) to check out these guys up close, you find yourself just staring endlessly at the surprising beauty and intricate detail of this fellow. I may never eat crab again! :) Warmest congrats, Anita - excellent work!

WOW Ok so how did you get that close? These rascals are fast as lightning as I have them in my back yard and have never been able to get an image until they are dead in the dogs mouth. ha ha
Super shot Anita and a well deserved award with or without a camera if they only knew how fast they are.
Have a blessed day.
