Hawaiian Swimming Crab

Photo Copyright 2010 by Barry Fackler

I just wanted to share this image of a tiny juvenile Hawaiian Swimming Crab I took last weekend. I've often seen photos like this on the web or in magazines but never thought I'd actually take one myself. The odds of getting the flash on the critter just seemed beyond my level and luck. Anyway, I'm just happy with this result.

This photo was taken with a new SeaLife DC1200 camera. I'm not too thrilled with it just yet. Macro shots (like this) are pretty good, the "normal" focus is mediocre and getting good photos of big animals is almost impossible. Maybe things will get better with more experience. Anyway, I'm pleased with this pic!
