Behind The Lens

The photo was taken during our trip to the Galapagos. I was trying to getting down to the eye lever with the creature. After a few tries, this one gave me the best post.
The photo was taken in the middle of the day - luckily, it was a cloudy day.
I wanted to be able to capture not only the eyes, but also all the colors of the crab, i.e. top view would not capture the blue on the bottom.
Sony a-6000 (a good travel camera, not too heavy), E 4.5-6.3 / 70-350 G OSS, handheld, no flash
I love travel and nature. The Galapagos trip was so fascinating - seeing all the wildlife in their habitat. I had good opportunity to be able to get up close to them.
I use Adobe Lightroom for minor editing, such as cropping, highlights, shadows, and vignette as necessary.
In my camera bag
For traveling, I carry my Sony a-6000, a Sony F4 18-105 lens, a Sony E 4.5-6.3 / 70-350 G OSS lens, 4 batteries, and lens cleaning stuff.
Get down to the same level as the subject, and capture the eyes.
