Night Time Critter

This picture was complicated and unexpected.  While walking back to my car from a shoot this little critter appeared on the rocks to clean the snibbles that were left behind by the beach goers.   I used a fairly high ISO, the VR on my lens, and on camera flash but the picture still lack detail I wanted.   Lesson learned … an ounce of preparation even for these type of unexpected shots can provide a pound of satisfaction!
