I was on a shoot at Blackie Spit / Crescent Beach a few weeks ago. I wandered along the beach afterward, talking with the many beach-lovers that were enjoying the sun as much as I was. I asked one boy “What do you have under your hand on the sand?" He showed me. He and his brother were collecting baby crabs who were biding their time under the large rocks on the beach. The boys kindly showed me these lovely and very small baby crabs, and one even pinched the young boy's finger as he held one to show me.
No worries for the baby crabs … they were returned back to their pleasant life after a short viewing by us all.
