A dead Oar-footed Crab (Matuta lunaris) on Karwar beach. These crabs often get killed when they are caught as by-catch in fishing nets. Even though they are removed from the nets and released on the shore, they are usually too far away from the tide to make it back safely to the sea, and most of them end up dying of exhaustion/dessication or get eaten by birds.
Thought of giving this image a more abstract look, so converted it to B&W and gave it a big contrast boost to make the water flowing away from the body look more prominent.

Thanks, C&C welcome.
