Photographer's Note

As I was bay-fishing this kid approached me if I like to see his pet. He pulled something out and showed me the biggest hermit crab I've ever seen! Since he noticed that I was quite amazed with its size, He generously asked me if I like to have it. I said thanks but I might not be able to take good care of it. But I do like to have a photo of you holding it.

Hermit crabs reside inside unoccupied seashells and as they grow they relocate to bigger shells. It seems this hermit crab was unlucky finding a better one. Its house is just too small for him.
