Been meaning to post this for awhile....definitely one of my favorite displays that he does! I think he's trying to look like a hermit, but it's hard to tell....

 
This is a common posture for Abdopus aculeatus, particularly when disturbed. I particularly like the jerky locomotion that looks very much like a hermit teetering along. H. lunulata does the same thing, but much less commonly.

I think it looks like a large hermit crab, the way he scuttles...then flies...lazy...lol. Yeah, all of my hermits fly around the tank when they get bored of walking...

That would be a nightmare having blue leg hermits FLYING around my tank, harassing my fish...lol.
