Crab and coral, Desecheo Puerto Rico
We are looking at a really substantial swell to roll in in a couple of days... which will knock out diving here as the water will be too rough to make the passage out to Desecheo Island. So, thinking about it I thought I'd bust an image I made there. This particular image was made at the Aquarium... one of my favorite tours. The crab was bold and just kept on moving, pausing and moving again. I had the strobe with me that day and was able to make this fetching portrait.
Its a red crab and was about twice the size of your outstretched hand. Moved pretty well and did not seem to mind my presence.
There is a ton of things to do here involving the water... below, on and beside. This is just one of them.
