Sand Crabs

 on 


On our way back from the Little Beach we took a wrong turn. OK, I took a wrong turn. We stopped for a second to re-program the navigation unit. While I was doing that my wife asked: what is that crawling on the sand? We all looked and the whole regions of sand seemed to shift. We all got out of the car to discover thousands of little sand crabs walking together on the beach. I must admit I have never seen this beautiful blue sand crab before, not one, let alone thousands.

I took a lot of photos but these crabs were moving rather fast and as a result only few came out well. This is certainly a spot I will be returning to soon.

    Great picture. Love the composition and the colors of the crabs are amazing. Have never seen crabs like that. And seeing thousands would really be something to see. Wow.

  • Fascinating picture, I’ve been to the beach and ocean many times and have never witnessed such an event. Truly interesting composition, the colors are amazing and so are these little creatures. Impressive image Ted.
