Out Of The Water

When I visited Jeddah in the winter of 2011, just before I spent the rest of the day with the Coast Guard officers (another story), I saw these crabs on the rocks. Today they were present at our dive site sunning themselves. The eyes are sharp. They know they are someone’s dinner. I couldn’t get close. Their legs can be brilliant red. I just got this guy for the photo record and in remembrance of the very nice folks in the Coast Guard station who hosted us for all those many boring hours.
