Artist's Description

Aldabra Atoll, Seychelles. I

Immense hermit crabs roam Aldabra Atoll’s sandy dunes, skittering about while scavenging the beach and scrubby underbrush for tasty morsels. Too sizable to fit into a shell as a typical hermit crab does, these crabs merit being called the largest hermit crab in the world. The crabs I encountered measured 10-12" (25.4-30.5 cm) in width although they have been documented to reach a staggering 3-feet (91.5 cm) in size, making them a force with which to reckon.

Canon 40D, Tamron 28-75mm lens, shutter 1/60, f/3.5, exposure bias 0.33, focal length 75mm, ISO 200.

March 13, 2008.
