Have a look at photos of wildlife, festivals and travel sites here. Sharing tips for travelers with a twist of humor is part the life I enjoy in Okinawa, Japan.

Wildlife Photo: Coconut Crab (Birgus latro) IeShima Okinawa, Japan
When I was developing this photo and the wife saw it she wanted to know why I only took pictures and didn't bring the thing home to eat. I'm a cameraman, not a fisherman. You know what I caught.
This crab was hanging out about 12 feet (4 meters) above the floor of the cave. I'm only half that size.
Photo specs: Tripod and shutter cable with a Pentax K10D and flash f/11 1/60 ISO 100 Lens at 250mm.

You know that particular crab could get you around 7-10,000 Yen depending on his size. Great picture but at those prices, you might want to take up fishing as your "new" hobby!
Why heck, that could have paid for the boat ride!
