A dark-colored small neck crab has chosen a particularly bad hiding place on a light-colored soft coral frond.  The neck crab is a sort of "decorator" crab, allowing itself to be covered with other small organisms and algae to blend in to its environment.  At the "Amber Head" dive site, Turneffe Atoll, Belize.
