I find Yellowline Arrowcrabs just irresistible photo subjects.

These were taken in either Bonaire or Sint Maarten usually with a snoot and a 60mm lens

Wow love these. The first one looks as if there is an explosion of colours around the  arrow crab.

The first 2 are superb Tim, I always struggle with arrow crabs, never seem to get them right - may have to imitate your efforts next time I see them!

Mike 

p.s. up the blues for tomorrow - should be a great atmosphere

Thanks, Mike!

Snoot up, I reckon for Arrowcrabs. 
 

On tomorrow (Sunday). Agreed! I’m going to be on an internet-free dive liveaboard  off the Turks and Caicos. I’m not sure if it’s coincidence or a sub-conscious desire to avoid the emotional trauma of another 93:20 win. (With apologies to non-soccer fans). CITD. :yahoo:

I love arrow crabs as well, to the boredom of those who watch my videos, I'm afraid.  Great shots, Tim!

Just had to add these guys. It must be Arrowcrab breeding time in Sint Maarten. They are everywhere!

Two of them had read about the James Webb telescope and just had to check out the stars for themselves......

That’s an awesome image.  Amazing DOF for what looks like a very close macro shot.

No shame in that.  Crop ‘em if you’ve got the resolution!
