Sand bubbler

A sand bubbler crab (Scopimera inflata) at Taylor Point
I've often seen the small balls of sand created by sand bubbler crabs on the beach, and seen the small crabs scurrying amongst them. Not until today, however, when I lay down on the sand to photograph them, did I appreciate how well camouflaged they are against the background they create.
