Honorable Mention Compact Behavior

Noumea, New Calendonia

"Reflection of a Crab"



The Story: It had been a few days since I had seen 2 crabs. A third one was near them that I suppose was the female. The first two got closed to each other without fighting. They fought with each other 3 times but quickly parted ways. I stayed for nearly 2 hours waiting for them to fight so I could get a good reflect shot of the scene. Sea was calm and the tide was perfect. They fought two times leading to this picture that I really like because it’s a rare behavior that few divers had the chance to witness.
