This adorable and captivating hermit crab was our very own for several minutes yesterday. The young snorkelers at Huguenot Park found Hermit and brought him to me where I caressed him with my lens and got this one perfect shot to remember him by.

Goodbye Hermit. You were an exquisite little fellow. Be well.
