Photographer's Note

Today I walked on the Agta beach and saw a few Hermit crabs fighting. AS far I know it where Diogenidae,s. That means that they have one claw (left) wich is stronger developed. I guess they where fighting for their shell. Coz the red one wants a bigger house and tryed to get the blue one out. After a while there was a kind of "Seas of fire". The blue one was in the shell and the red one stopped attacking. However he didn't let the blue one go. I seperated them and after a few seconds the blue one ran away and the red one was following him/her.
