|Hairy hermit, Pagurus hirsutiusculus.|
Tonight, while I tried to photograph a snail eating algae, trying to get a glimpse of its radula, a small hermit photobombed the scene. Maybe it's the angle: the hermit is above me, staring straight down at the flashing light that had attracted her attention: the whole eye is dark, and looks rectangular. I'd never seen one like that before.
|"My turn! Forget that boring, slowpoke snail!"|
She stepped on the snail's head, and he (the snail) promptly retreated into the shell. End of photo op.
