Hello Manaswi,
These small crabs are difficult to photograph not only because they are camouflaged, but because they move fast and disappear into their burrows or into the water.
This is a fine capture with good sharpness that shows most of its features clearly.
Thanks and best regards,

Pretty good capture of a Crab on Puri beach, Manaswi. These creatures are very quick on their feet. I tried to shoot them on a beach in Goa two years ago, but they would quickly disappear into their holes in the sand before I could focus on them. So I have yet to shoot my first Crab.
The sand grains and the Crab match each other in this picture.
Well done and TFS.
