This fellow is part of a large colony of land hermit crabs on one of our many local spoil islands. I wish it were more in focus (in the right areas) and better (in general).

However, it\'s the best I could do with an angry critter and bleeding finger (due to pinch of angry critter) whilst fighting off a swarm of mosquitoes.

Im sorry I had a good cluckle reading up on youre comments about the "angry critter and bleeding finger" part, its not that funny as I imagined it hurt a fair bit but LOL I cant help myself. Anyway I think the colours, composition and focus were great, IMO it mite have been a tad over sharpened but could be my monitor also...

On many shots like this, the DOF is good, but how is the subject here enhanced by the bokeh?
