Can You Find The Crab?

Can you find the tiny crab, whose coloring matches the large grains of sand of this beach on the north shores of Kauai?

Can you find the tiny crab, whose coloring matches the large grains of sand of this beach on the north shores of Kauai?

I saw this tiny crab, about the size of a grape, skittering across the loose sand of a beach on the north shore of the island of Kauai in Hawaii. When the crab stopped, the crab was hard to spot.  I don’t know what kind of crab it is.  Possibly a ghost or a sand crab.  Does anyone know?

Here's a closer look at the tiny crab that I saw skittering across the loose sand of a beach on the north side of Kauai. When the crab stopped moving, I could barely see it.

    Looks like what a ghost would look like, nearly invisible! Nice photo, and attuned senses.

  2. I enlarged the first photo and I did find him, although it was hard. Incredible how he blends in so well. Awesome photographs!

  3. No !! I’ve gone cross-eyed looking for it in the top photo ;roll: xox

  4. How did you even see it in the first place?

  5. Yours pictures are lovely, Catherine.

    Wow, that is amazing! I never saw it in the first picture and was glad you posted a close up. Sheesh…looks just like the sand.

  7. Ein schönes Wochenende. Gruß, Wolfgang
