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.
