This porcelain crab is tiny, about half the size of my fingernail, and is perched on a fire urchin which offers spiky protection from predators, gives it a ride around the sea bed, and allows it to snack on leftovers on the move. A perfect arrangement for the crab, and an interesting background for an underwater photo.
