Little Green Crab

Another awaiting the tide to come back in. 

I like the darkness of the crab against the golden sand and the white shell.  I cropped a number of times in different ways and settled on this closeup that includes a bit of “channel” along the granite rocks that leads to the crab.  I like the details of the crab – every line of every joint and those beady little eyes., but I also like his front claws being tucked underneath just out of view.image

Oh my he is little! Love the colors. We use to refer to that as bottle green. Maybe I'll have to knit a green companion for my bright red Deadliest Crab!
Kitchen renovation. Oh my, sending out lots of prayers for inspiration and patience! Give the duo a pet from me too. :-)

Plus, good job getting complimentary colors and contrasting values in that picture!
