The Crab and the Diver

A trip to Brixham breakwater was a welcome break from writing, and organising my life. I love the Great Northern Divers there. This individual was still in the shadows of the surrounding buildings and hills in the harbour as it popped up to the surface close to me.

I suspect the crab it has caught is a Velvet Swimming Crab, Necora puber. Whichever species it is, I don’t think it’s long for this world.
