Underwater Photography 71/365 Feeding Hermit Crab

“Feeding Hermit Crab”

Nikon D90   Nikkor 60 mm   1/60   f/16.0   ISO 200

I found this Red Hermit Crab “Dardanus Calidus” on a night dive at the North face of the Benidorm Island past summer, what called my attention initially was some sort of white area on the floor, as I approached it, I found out it was a piece of fish flesh, (for the size and skin texture I guess it was from a White Sea Bream), and my friendly crab was having a proper meal with it.

It’s a shame I wasn´t carrying enough light to make a video as it was real fun seeing him cut the meat to place it into his mouth, it looked like if he was knitting it instead.

Note:  If you click on the image to see it large,  you will see another interesting thing on this image, as you can appreciate the effect of the thermocline arround the crab

Me encontré con este Cangrejo Ermitaño “Dardanus Calidus” en una inmersión nocturna en la cara norte de la isla de Benidorm el pasado verano, lo que me llamó la atención inicialmente era una especie de área blanca en el suelo, a medida que me acercaba, descubrí que era un pedazo de pescado, (por la textura de la piel y el tamaño,supongo que era de un Sargo), y mi amigo el cangrejo se estaba dando un buen atracón.

Es una lástima que no llevaba conmigo suficiente luz para haber hecho un video ya que esa bastante divertido verle cortar la carne para llevársela a la boca, en lugar de comer daba la sensación de estar tejiéndola.

Nota: Si pinchas en la imagen para verla en grande se puede apreciar alrededor del cangrejo el efecto de la termoclina.
