Canon Power Shot G7 X Mark II in a Fantasea housing. Cropped & auto-enhanced button on iPhone

Photo Location

I got this photo during a morning scuba dive at "Lighthouse" off Nunukan Island, part of the Maratua Atoll, off East Kalimantan, on the Indonesian side of Borneo at a depth of about 16 meters. I saw this red, hairy, less-than-one-inch-long, orangutan crab a couple days after seeing the 2-meter ape version in the wilds of Kutai National Park.
