I had never seen this crab with eggs before. I suppose his "fur" would normally cover them up. Taken with Nikon D800, 600 lens with +5 Subsea diopter_F8F3592-2.jpg eggs closeup (1 of 1).jpg

Have others seen this?

Whoops! That should have been a 60mm lens.

Great subject!

Never seen an oranguan crab carrying eggs. It would be awesome to photograph them when hatching.

Cheers

Daniel
