art of nature

March 8, 2018

“Galaxies” is how some people have described the patterns that sand bubbler crabs create when they’re scavenging the sand for food. It’s transient art, because they only last as long as the tide is low. The more elaborate the pattern, the longer the tide has been out. It’s amazing to think that something so beautiful is the byproduct of basic survival. And that it washes away, just like that, until the next time. Nature really is extraordinary. Watch this video of the tiny artists hard at work on a beach in Koh Lanta, Thailand. It’s really quite incredible.
