Sand Crab

Nikon D40 @ 200mm, ISO200, f8, 1/25 sec.  Cropped, partial Gaussian blur, warm touch up.
A tiny sand crab coming out from the safety of its burrow to check me out.  From the amount of sand balls outside, this crab has one deep hole.

Taken at July last year, I was testing the macro capabilities of 18-200VR.  The result was acceptable =)

Thanks Murphy =) Yes it was cropped, but only because the lens has a minimum focusing distance of 50cm so there were a lot of empty space in the picture.
