These crabs are typically very shy and live in broken rubble areas of the reef. They are very hard to spot and it is extremely rare to encounter them in the open. If they are in the open, they tend to be moving swiftly. A closer investigation also showed that the sea star was actually upside down when the image was taken. Sea stars are only upside down if something has caused them to be so! It should be noted that it is a very striking image indeed, and attracted a great deal of attention on the group.
Capturing images using snoots takes time, skill and patience, and it is hard but not impossible to imagine a circumstance in which a boxer crab would stay still in the open long enough to allow a photographer to capture one snoot lit shot.
My understanding that this one shared was one image of a series of at least 13, taken over some 35 minutes. When this is combined with the pose of the animal on an upside down starfish, the likelihood of it occurring naturally is so remote as to be grounds to challenge the techniques used to capture the shot. It seems likely that the crab was herded in some way onto the starfish and kept in place long enough for the images to be created. My understanding is that the photographer refutes any such accusation.
While there are much bigger issues facing the marine world, and the crab was probably basically unharmed by this action, it does call into question whether images like this should be shared. Given how popular this image has been, it has helped to normalize behaviors that certainly seem to be unnatural. Log in. Mixtapes Forums Lyrics Artists add Journals.

Add your thoughts 91 Comments. General Comment Well, I am often cited as being a pessimist; perhaps rightly so First, the genre of folk rock music leads me to think that the song is NOT one of hope or overcoming the despair, loneliness, fear conveyed within the first few verses.
I think it's interesting that the narrator telling his seldom-told story , prefaces his story by stating that "still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest I believe that while the boxer metaphor may not leave the ring "fighter still remains" I equate it to similar ideas in other P.
Simon tunes; like American Tune, or like in America. Songs about unfulfilled dreams IMO. Giving in, accepting that the dream was just a dream. Songs about acquiescing If it isn't obvious, my interpretation of this song is sad, while at the same time, comforting. The boxer is not just Paul; it's basically anyone everyone? We're all battle weary And while we may keep on keeping on, that doesn't mean we're victorious morally or otherwise.

There was an error. UWDawgfather I like you am a pessimist and don't read lyrics for their facade meaning. I have often pondered the "come on from the whores of 7th Avenue" line. If I remember correctly, wasn't or isn't a major record label on 7th Avenue in Manhattan? Musicians are pretty much treated like whores by the pimps i.

Record companies who make the lion's share of recording revenues. Flag mydreamquest on May 04, UWDawgfather agree, it is a sad coming of age song, one of despair for a young man. One of the greatest ever, truly underrated, not sure why it isn't recognised more widely for what it is. Flag Lovegoodmusic on August 09, UWDawgfather Actually, I was just at a website today that claimed the song may actually be about Bob Dylan, who was an amateur boxer for a bit, and many of the lyrics sort of fit his life, too. Whether it is true or not is beyond me Flag michael2ta on August 21, General Comment I've heard this verse added a few times, I guess it would be the 4th verse: Now the years are rolling by me, they are rocking evenly.
I am older than I once was, but younger than I'll be. That's not unusual. No, it isn't strange, After changes upon changes, we are more or less the same. After changes we are more or less the same.

I asked my girlfriend if she wouldn't prefer to hear "America" instead.

But she said no, the boxer was the right mood for us. We needed courage and strength, even though we had been beaten down. Upon reflection, I think she was right.
