86. Disguised to perfection (Decorator Crab)



Subject: Disguised to perfection, this Decorator Crab is good as invisible to the untrained eye. The camouflage of this little critter is virtually perfect, even its eyes are dotted with little white points that resemble the sand grains of its surroundings. This small fellow only gave away its position after it moved a tiny bit.

Technique: Always take different shots and from different angles to make a nice composition when you create your clip. These different shots are often useful to identify your critter. Sadly all attempts to identify this Mr. Camouflage were in vain.
