Thanks Karen,

this one really is at its best when viewed in full screen mode, then you can see the detail in it. It's amazing how colourful and full of detail these small creatures can be. Nature is magnificent!

My apologies Karin for misspelling your name. Karen is a great photographer, but these thanks were not meant for her.

Best regards, Timo

Thank you Karin,

these crabs are posing nicely, so you can test for best exposure and composition. Only problem they are so small it's really difficult to find them!

Best regards, Timo
