Dunno if its my monitor but the colour on the first one seems a bit muted. Still the way it is looking at the camera is just so expressive. Other than that 'Wow!' is all I can say. :thumbsup:

Heh.. yeah... marine life in lembeh is so rich and diverse. There were 2 organisms on the crinoid. a squat lobster, crinoid shrimp amd the crinoid crab. Squat lobster was too skittish to take though.....

Thanks for the compliments

Heh.. couldn't find any resources on the crab..... i couldn't even make out the family or sub-family of it... :embrass:

Well not as vibrant though on 8X12..... and thanks for the tip on the porcelain crab. Won't be as impressive without your advice. ;)

Hi annery,

They are essentially crabs, crabs that lives on soft corals to be precise.

Both are not poisonous. They mimick their surroundings and normally feed on plankton
