TP 198: The Natural World

I thought I'd share this photo of a tiny crab on Kata Beach, Phuket, Thailand.  It was about the size of my little finger nail including it's legs, and would pick up a ball of sand from one side of its path, investigate it and then throw it out behind.  I can only assume that it was extracting some kind of food or nutrient from it.

At the sign of a shadow, it would shoot back into its hole, only to reappear when it thought it was safe again.


  1. Certainly worth waiting for - a clever shot. It's almost impossible to see him against the sand!

  2. Great shot - congratulations on actually spotting the crab, let alone taking a photo of it!!

  3. cute is HE?! :-)

    Well spotted!!


If you'd like to leave a comment, I'd love to hear it.

If you prefer to just read, appreciate and then move on, that's fine too :-)
