Crab Pellets by onewing

Crab Pellets

I love how the crab pellets add to the patterns on the sand.

I took this photo a couple of days ago when I walked along the secluded beach.

I haven't left the house at all today because it has poured with rain.

Even though we are in isolation at the moment we are still able to walk as long as we keep a safe distance from other people.
I like to see the designs some crabs make in the sand

Crabs are fascinating little creatures. A great natural history image.

Nicely caught, they make great patterns.

Interesting texture. We are in total lockdown, only allowed out for essentials (groceries and medications). They say until 16th April but I wouldn't be surprised if it gets extended. Stay safe and well.

Well spotted. They make very pretty designs and patterns. The older generation, including me and Christine, and those vulnerable are on lockdown and prohibited from exiting their homes. I don't know how the authorities can ensure that orders are being obeyed. We are but there may be some hard-headed individuals who enjoy breaking the instructions even at the risk of being fined.

I used to love the soldier crabs when I was little.

Really interesting.

Great textures and patterns

Such great textures created on this beach- I don't think I've ever seen them before. We really learn so much on here! Good shot!

No lock downs here but most people are staying close to home. I can't believe how easy it is to get to the essentials when I need them!

Nice textures and patterns

I remember being fascinated by these as a child

I have never heard of crab pellets before, not quite sure what they are but make an amazing pattern. Glad you can still walk your beach....it’s depressing if you can’t get out. We are in quarantine for another ten days then can venture out just for essentials but preferable our age group shouldn’t go out at all but I hate asking others to do our shopping etc. In another ten days I think we might be desperate to break free & have a little walk! Good job we have lots of garden!

@happypat You must be in the 14 day quarantine regulations after being in New Zealand I gather. What a bummer.
Yes we can still walk on our local beach because it doesn't get crowded, not like the beaches in Sydney etc. We are to abide by the social distancing rules and we can go to the supermarket etc but are advised to stay at home as much as possible.
I am finding all sorts of new photo opportunities since being restrticted. Hope you are free again soon.

@dide @777margo @peadar @salza @gilbertwood @pcoulson @joannakate @sangwann @ludwigsdiana @bkbinthecity @pdulis @seattlite @rontu @cmp @flowerfairyann @gijsje @carolmw @olivetreeann @craftymeg Thanks. We are still able to walk on our local beaches as they don't get crowded at all. In fact this day I didn't see a soul because it isn't easy to access this beach. We have to keep to social distancing and stay home as much as possible. Got to risk going to the supermarket tomorrow but will go early.

@pusspup I love watching the soldier crabs too, they are fascinating and we get hundreds of them here.

@casablanca Two weirdo's together then because I can see animal shapes too.

@koalagardens I am fascinated by them now too, not only when I was a child.

Lovely pattern capture. Lucky you to be able to walk the beach. Our entire lakefront is now closed as too many did not respect the social distancing needs. The downside of a big city.
March 28th, 2020  
Great shot, very interresting.
March 28th, 2020  
@onewing Yes results of flying but has to be done....I don’t mind though, early days yet!
March 28th, 2020  
Oh gosh, never seen anything like it. Hope you two are OK and managing in these difficult times.
March 29th, 2020  
@golftragic All good Marnie. I will email you when I get chance. Being limited on outings at the moment I am getting creative with my photography, well at leas trying. Had a play today and will post the results later.

Hope you and Les are ok. Must be worrying with her breathing difficulties and your health problems too.

@onewing Good to hear from you Babs. I intend to email all my friends in the next day or two to catch them up with what I've been up to. I was so far behind here that I had to cut out the couple of hours a day 365 can take.
March 29th, 2020  
@onewing Yes thanks, we're both well. More anon.
March 29th, 2020  
Great patterns. Lovely abstract
March 29th, 2020  
wish I had lovely place to walk along the beach - love those crinkly patterns
