Speechless Sunday-The Art of Camouflage In The Sand

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

My What Big Eyes You Have

If you are looking for industrious creatures you may want to add sand crabs to your list.  They rarely seem to slow down other than to give you the suspicious eye as you try and catch them popping out of their hole.  This guy does a nice job of blending in with the surrounding sand.  His larger cousins made a delicious dinner!

Cal-he was a tiny one compared to a few others in the colony.  Cousins were delicious with Old Bay Seasoning.

Deborah-you have to pay close attention but they do seem to have a way of just popping up and you have to look closely to see them.

David-we went crabbing ourselves for the edible version but only caught ones that we had to throw back.  Fortunately someone else caught the ones we could keep and eat.

What a cute picture!  Makes me long for some quiet time in a beach chair listening to the waves.

Hi Cindy, That is a wonderful photo and you really great job capturing it to show the camouflage. I took a photo of new hummingbird baby and they are born with camouflage as well. When they are in tree, the look just like it in all sorts of colors that look like foliage.

Rob-perhaps if I had my crabbing net with me when I was on the beach I might have been able to catch one.  But they are quick.
