St. Kitts Monster Lobster

During our last vacation, I did some scuba diving while we where in St. Kitts.  It is fairly common to see lobsters when I dive.  They're usually hidden under ledges, in holes, etc…  They don’t usually come out in the open during the day.  On one of the dives, we came upon a huge (biggest I’ve ever seen) lobster walking across the ocean bottom.  I got in position to take his picture and he kept walking right up to me until he was touching the front of my camera.  So I captured a bunch of pictures and then got out of the way so Ron could catch him for dinner.   You can see the entire story in the pictures below.
