message Thanks Christian, the purple sea pen makes a great background, but it is also the home for this crab. It hides between the fronds and even retreats under the sand when the sea pen retracts into the sand.

btw. I'm not allowed anymore hotshots or medals here. I just thought I would share the photo with the members and see which ones still remember me. Starting with you, that makes a total of 1. laugh
