    You have the system figured out for taking a wonderful photo of your Blue-Banded Hermit Crab in the Brown Turban Shell. Excellent! You need to add this one to the SLO Coast Journal set.

    This is a superb shot, Linda - the crab and its home are both beautifully captured - excellent dof too.

    Hi there,
    My name is Jenny Villagran and I am a web designer at the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco. We are currently redesigning our website. We have an event coming in a few months in which the theme is HOME. Because we are very interested in marine science, we went looking for a great image of a hermit crab and stumbled upon yours:

    Would it be possible for us to use your image in our event calendar listing on our website? We can include a line of photo credit and possibly a link to your photostream or website.
    Thank you,
