These beautifully colored crabs were quite abundant along the coastal areas, with the reds and oranges contrasting beautifully with the black volcanic rock, where they were typically seen. They did venture onto the sand as well, and I chose this shot for inclusion here. I have many in my collection at home showing them on the volcanic rock, if anyone is interested.
