Mark here again. Here is a homeless hermit crab found in a cave on the island of Curcao. Our tour guide mentioned how rare it is to find these little grabs without a home on their backs.

Who's Mark? What did you do with Archie?!?!? Did he run away with the shell? This is a nice shot. I like the lighting on this one. I've never seen a crab without a shell, now i know why they have one. Great title too.

It's me ! Mark ! Archies photo friend. Archie is still on "vacation". He called me from his cell and it sounds like he is on a remote island somewhere in the southern hemisphere.

He will return soon

This image really captures the essence of the crab out on his own, away from home, away from friends. He's alone, and he's searching, naked and hungry, but there is a beam of light and he will find the way to both home and food. He's healthy and young, and the odds are in his favor. Walk on young Henry, walk on.
