Moritz Drabusenigg Pagurus bernhardus Canon 600D / 60mm USM F5.6 - 1/160 - ISO 100 To be fair i am still waiting to get my housing, so meanwhile i practice on the shore. The crab was in a glass of water... at least haha!

David Price practicing "dry" is actually a good idea. Gives you a chance to shoot things with different exposures, different flash settings, etc.

Moritz Drabusenigg yes, at the moment i,m playing around with DOF and background lighting! I want to be prepared when i get my housing :)

Annette Graves Fantastic shot Marco, could possibly be Dardanus sp hermit, worth a look :)

Marco Paravella Thanks Annette Stuart for the comments...I do not know, maybe it could also be a Pagurus anachoretus is the right claw that identifies them and I do not see well, bye

Marco Paravella Thanks all for the likes, bye

Andy Horton 4 June 2012 A rockpooling visit to Worthing Pier on a low (0.4 metres) spring tide produced a surprise Brittlestar as well as some infrequent summer occurences like two large Velvet Swimming Crabs, Necora puber, a handful of small Common Hermit Crabs, Pagurus bernhardus, in winkle shells, a single Common Starfish Asterias rubens, one Dahlia Anemone, Urticina felina, one small Long-legged Spider Crab Macropodia rostrata, and one sub-adult 5-Bearded Rockling, Ciliata mustela. A Greater Pipefish, Syngnathus acus, was rescued from the beak of a Herring Gull. Daisy Anemones, Cereus pedunculatus, were frequently found in chocolate brown hues. Snakelocks Anemones, Anemonia viridis, were common as usual with frequent Beadlet Anemones Actinia equina. Full Rockpooling Report http://www.glaucus.org.uk/LancingBeach2008.htm#4June (This came out like a list: I must be a bit tired.)

David Hill David Hill Andy - went on a Bioblitz on Saturday at Cemlyn Bay (north coast of Anglesey) and today rockpooling at Llanddulas (north Wales coast) - lots of interesting new finds (for me anyway, fairly new to marine life). Cemlyn included Eel, 5-Bearded Rockling, Butterfish, Lobster and Great Scallop - a few pics here www.flickr.com/photos/natureseye/sets/72157630042354134/ and list of species here http://www.cofnod.org.uk/BioBlitz?ID=6 At Llanddullas this afternoon lots of Sea Gooseberries and a few Pipefish, pics to follow.

Andy Horton The Greater Pipefish did not look injured when collected, but I do not think it will survive. The gulls catch these pipefish occasionally and drop them in gardens.

Joe Bater that would have been a great UW macro photography day!

Andy Horton Not so good on the photography front. Pier causes shadows and low light. Capture and return. I hope to get a few shots later. I was terrestrial and the critters were under rocks. More though. The young rockpoolers (8 yo) are well informed now.

Andy Horton 23 April 2011 There were almost ideal condition for shrimping of Lancing Beach (east Widewater) with a gentle almost imperceptible swell, almost negligible Light Breeze Force 5, (5 mph, NNE), pleasant weather with an air temperature of 18.9 °C on the 9.50 am low tide of 1.1 metres. Brown Shrimps, Crangon crangon, were common (200+ caught in 40 minutes)

Andy Horton Some of the shrimps were too small for the pot. The water was clear and free of weed, but there was very little else around. I caught two young Plaice, one of which escaped and a handful shot off at the approach of the smaller (one metre) semi-circular shrimp net, and the only other incidentals were three very small Common Hermit Crabs, Pagurus bernhardus, in Grey Topshells (i.e. not Diogenes). Advection fog set in over the sea as the tide turned and the visibility was diminished to under 50 metres.
