Nice shot. I used to have one of these in my aquarium eating my fish. Had to use a hook and bait to get him. Sat there for hours waiting on it to bite. Couldn't believe it finally worked.

Not too fond of the left antennae being cut off by the frame, but overall this is a nice photo. It's a bit dark, and could use some shadow recovery just a bit, but mainly it's the mid-tonnes that I'd try and brighten slightly.
