Soldier Crabs Breathing
These miniature crabs spiral down into the sand for safety and in so doing create these amazing patterns with their breathing. Tiny as they are, they stick together making them stronger and safer ... and more beautiful than alone. These were each about the size of a small car ~ amazingly beautiful in their apparent simplicity.
