I have been pointing my lens upwards for most of my photos. This time I'll cover the ground =)
This was taken during an early morning walk in Bantayan Island. These small crabs comes by the thousands. They are very difficult to photograph as if you try to get close enough they will either run or bury themselves in the sand. I'm just fortunate that I have 10MP came with a 200mm zoom.
I followed them for quite sometime since i was amazed by their sheer numbers until they eventually vanished in the sea.

Great shot. I can just image the speed they are moving, not very grateful for taking a photo of them. You did a great job, created nice pattern composition with adorable colour combination. Nice work!
Best regards and happy holidays,
