Victory in Unterwasser Visions

The Krazy Krab was just what the jury was looking for last month in the Unterwasser Visions competition.

The Krazy Krab was photographed at the island of Sal, Cape Verde, on a trip with Cabo Verde Diving.

In May, the jury asked for quite a lot: The subject should be separated from the background, which should be monochrome and preferably display some color.

The Krazy Krab was right down their alley and won the competition.

This is what the jury wrote in their comment: (translated from german):

A crazy image that really lives up to it's title. The face with eyes and mouth looks both human and funny, and you can't really look away. We bow our thanks! Our favourite has it all - and even made us smile".

The crab on the picture is a yellowline arrow crab (Stenorhynchus seticornis) captured at Cape Verde islands last november, on a trip with Cabo Verde Diving.

Along with the points achieved in January, I now have 18 points combined and share third spot with Arthur J. Telle Thiemann (ES) and Ivo Vaeßen (D) in the overall standings.
