If this is through glass (must be surely) then it's a great looking shot.

@Curly: It's not through glass Curly, it's directly in nature, I found this hermit crab climbing on a tree ... Thanks !

The hermit crab seems well named. Fine shot of him in his new home.

El color y la composición son espléndidas. La pequeña profunidad de campo fija la atención en las patitas. Espero que el mercado de caracolas de los cangrejos no sufra una burbuja especulativa como por aquí.
