Crab hanging on

The Sally Lightfoot crab is a common sight in the Galapagos. I observed several clinging to rocks as waves splashed over them. A slow shutter speed emphasised the movement of the water.

Supposedly named after a dancer popular in the Caribbean due to its quick movement, it’s also known as the red rock crab.
