Sometimes getting closer and cropping out extraneous stuff makes a picture cleaner. (By the way, the schooner Mary Day has some space open on the six-day cruise beginning Aug. 4.)

Photographer’s note: This guy is probably less than half an inch. One of the crew found him and brought him aboard in a bucket. I transferred him to a little glass and got out my macro lens. I lit it with an off-camera flash from the side. And I still had to crop the image a lot get it to fill the frame. The toughest part was focusing, as he kept moving around. So I shot a lot and a few were in focus.
