Hi all,

Here is a pic i took in Lanzarote using a MX10 (thats all they had for rent). Its a Archer crab that was trying to run away from me. He suddenly stopped and squared up to me. So I'll call this one "Come on then, if you think your hard enough" I was at about 8-9metres. Viz was pretty good say around 15M...

Lanzarote? Cold! Cold! I went to Tenerife last year but it was for work and I didn't get to dive... :lol: I may be going again next year. Did you enjoy diving there?

I like the photo, it is unusual to see those guys walking around like this.

Lanzarote cold ??? You must be spoilt...

Try the delights of the U.K in February..Brrrr!!

The crab was about 1-2 ft away from the reef edge as i came over the top.. I think he was on his way home when i caught him off guard..

The water was a lovely 22oc. So not to bad... I was very suprised with the amount of marine life at some of the dive sites. Loads of big stingrays and angelsharks, Tuna and grouper..Pity i wasted the film shooting Garden eels and Archer crabs. That was the first time I'd seen one, except on the T.V..

Glad you liked the pic..

Dive safe
