This hermit crab was photographed at the tide line on Fahan Beach, County Donegal, Ireland on a Spring day in the early evening. Fahan beach is on the Inishowen coast of Lough Swilly.

A hermit crab has no shell of its own and instead uses an empty shell that it finds on the beach. As it grows in size, it has to find a larger shell and abandon the previous one.

  • Manon,
    Thank you. Yes it was early evening with a low but strong sunlight sweeping across the beach. Just right for this sort of shot.
