A splash of colour

Uploaded: March 12, 2017 | Entered: March 12, 2017 09:53:27


A photo of a small Orange Runner Crab. Very shy critters but I am somehow drawn to them. Again apologies about my absence, but I am back today and will be posting again soon after a few days. This image I took after waiting some 2 hours in a rather uncomfortable position and a sore bum from the hard rocks. Plus also getting sprayed with sea water. All part of the fun and worth it when I get a shot that I am somewhat happy with.
Hope you like it, all comments are welcome :)
