When the tide is low…..

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Low

….the crabs come out to forage and rebuild their nests. The rebuilding creates fabulous patterns on the sand.

Sand Crabs start preparing do dig in the sand

Try to arrange the sand balls as they like

Just dig and throw

The sand balls build up as they dig

and suddenly intricate patterns are created

Only to be washed away when the tide comes in

Soldier crabs march across the sand looking for a snack or two
