Some Crab Portraits

The crabs in my 5.5 gallon pico-reef tank including an emerald crab, two porcelain crabs and a hermit crab. Here are some photographs of them.

I used a EOS 20D body and a old Vivitar 135mm f2.8 Close Focus macro manual focus lens in Nikon F mount that goes down to 1:2 magnification. I used a common Nikon/EOS adapter ring and stopped down metering. I also like to use a Nikon 55mm f2.8 AIS Micro lens also from time to time, but I really like the perspective of the 135mm and it's greater working distance.
