Ghost crab peeking out of it's den at dusk waiting for the incoming tide. I stumbled upon a sizable population of these tiny pink ghost crab one evening while beachcombing in Kuala Baram beach just off Miri. Photograph made at eye level to that of crab by crouching on all fours using a bean bag to support a Nikon F4s and AF200/4 Micro. One hour and two rolls later, I felt I have captured what I wanted of this extremely fidgety critter.

Good DOF. The colors have much of yellow ?! However it's a good job, well done. Your courage has been rewarded.

Did you do some postprocessing because the depth of field looks almost unreal? Good choice of perspective nonetheless. Interesting that you would have a beanbad on a beach.
