I don't know if anybody has presented such a "portrait" style photograph of a hermit crab before! Great focus on its eyes, it doesn't seem altogether pleased to be photographed though.
I've always known that hermit crabs recycled shells, but didn't really think about the neatness of it until now.

This is such a great macro.
It would certainly have gone down well on Trek Nature.
(I was expecting to see an old man with a long beard)
You've done really well showing this little fellow with tack sharp detail,and you've handled the exposure really well,even in the bright sunlight.
An excellent piece of work ... straight into my favouties.

Hi Mr Hermit! We have these little guys here and the kids make pets out of them! It's SO cool how they get tired of a shell and move into another one! Really nice shot Tim!

Great note and a very nice macro shot of this hermit crab. Although at present we do not have any as members of our family (pets), we have had many in the past, and one of my daughters in particular will enjoy this shot very much. Great control of light and detail!
All the best,

perfect lighting and clearly sharp image
my best compliments for the technically superb picture
hermit crabs in association with sea anemones exhibit mutualism
this is the most common example found in biology texts

Wonderful macro Tim. The detail is great, I have never been this close to one before, never really thought they were so small. Is this a pet? I ask because your fingers don't have much sand in them - just kidding, these are pretty quick creatures, I thought. I like how you show the contrast in size by having your fingers in the shot, not always a good idea in my opinion, but in this case works well.

A very good close-up photo of the hermit crab. The crab seem to be looking straight at the camera lens. It's probably curious seeing the image of another hermit crab in front of it. Excellent POV.

I happened to see this photo when I opened TL this morning. It was on special display.
I've always wondered about hermit crabs, so it was an opportunity to learn and see one close up.

Great shot, my wife was trying to convince herself to pick up a crab at the beach yesterday, but she couldn't do it. Really glad you did though, because this is an amazing macro shot. Great focus on the eyes, and perfect DOF.
