The ever running, ever scared, ever cautious crabs.
We see crabs running helter skelter on any sea beach.
Those tiny animals that run in an angled direction at astounding pace, and just vanish inside tiny holes in sand with utmost precision.
Ever wondered, what do crabs keep themselves so busy with?
All the time they are busy building homes in the sand.
Now, that is tough life.
Remember those beautiful patterns of tiny sand balls on beaches? The amazing patterns with one hole somewhere in between?
These are crab holes.
Crabs work round the clock to keep digging, taking out the sand clutched in their claws.
And then they throw that sand with amazing speed long way away from the entrance of the hole.
What an amazingly hectic life!
Every small grain of sand is picked up with such precision with the claws, they almost remind me of the great art of eating with hashi (chop-sticks).
Days after days, waves after waves, crabs stay steadfast on their task.
Never tiring, never giving up.
Never settling for anything that is not perfect.
The workaholic crabs!
