In sandy beaches of certain tropical regions in the Indo-Pacific live a tiny crab, about a centimeter across, called the Sand Bubbler Crab/Soldier Crab(Dotilla myctiroides)... This tiny crustacean have a spherical body with long & flat pincers, hairy legs & eyes on short stalks which can fold away into grooves when the crab scurries into its burrow... With a body color same as sand, these crabs are easy to miss... What goes without missing, however, are the intricate patterns they make on the beach when they search for food... Like tiny galaxies, these patterns are composed of hundreds of tiny sand balls - sometimes thousands, depending on how many fellows were snacking... These crabs eat the thin coating of edible organic particles on sand grains... When the tide goes out, they emerge from their burrows and start sifting through the sand, picking up the sand grains with their downward pointing pincers and bring it to their mouth to scrape the microscopic food... After scraping the sand grains clean, these crustaceans roll the same into little balls and toss them behind... By doing this they avoid sifting the same sand twice... The crabs work radially from the entrance to their burrow, scraping out a tiny path with little balls of sifted sand piled up on either side... They come out of their burrows as soon as the tide recedes... One can almost tell how long the tide has been out by looking at the pattern of their sand balls... The more intricate the pattern is, the longer the tide has been out... The Sand Bubbler Crab/Soldier Crab is widespread across the Indo-Pacific region, where they occur abundantly on sandy beaches in the tropics and sub-tropics... The sand art which they make is known as Sun Burst... . . . #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeseekers #wildlifeaddicts #wilderness #wildernessculture #nature #naturephotography #sandart #pattern #design #marine #marinelife #wildlifelovers #ig_discover_wildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #natureza #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #earthpix #discoverearth #ourplanetdaily #bbc #indianwildlifeofficial #wanderlust #travel #travelphotography

Saw this baby fairy-wren on my trip back from the high country a couple of weeks ago. Sitting on the road, not fussed by cars. I thought it might be sick or injured, but it flew off with a spritely chirp when I gave it a gentle nudge 🤷‍♂️ . . . . #australia #aussie #straya #hdrphotography #hdr #mansfield #highcountryvictoria #bird #wren #fairywren #cute #cuteanimals #adorable #bush #cuteaf #nature #natgeowild #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet #beautiful #feathers #babyanimals

It’s a shame that Instagram makes me cut a bit of the tail from the photo but this is a Blue-tailed gecko (Phelsuma cepesiana). Endemic to Mauritius, this day gecko is the most common and widespread on the island! . . . . . #wildlife #nature #earth #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #animalphotography #captures #animals #photography #animallovers #naturelover #wildlifeplanet #instanature #outdoors #animal #nikon #natgeo #wild #wilderness #conservation #naturereserve #endemism #islandwildlife #mauritianwildlifefoundation #mauritius #reptile #gecko #geckosofinstagram

Three bears in Kuusamo

A painted sandgrouse female in it's habitat, their beautiful camouflage makes them difficult to spot in the grasslands but their peculiar call is a nice way to track them. We got to observe a pair in the vihirgaon meadow of Madnapur buffer. Painted Sandgrouse Madnapur Buffer, Tadoba.

White Crested Laughing Thrush from the Henry Dooley Zoo!

Not often do you get to snap a clear pic of an hippo. This was taken on the Chobe River just as the afternoon sun was starting to fade away in the distance.

Lycaon pictus (Painted Wolf). African Wild Dog on an early morning hunt. These sociable animals share the responsibility of everything- hunting, raising pups, patrolling. Shortly after this image was taken, the pack gave up on the hunt and we watched them settling down to sleep- all cuddled together on the chilly morning. #lycaon #lycaonpictus #paintedwolf #hunt #motionblur #somkhanda

What’s it gonna be then, eh?

Just started going through my Masai Mara files of earlier this year #witholympus | Survival rate of Cheetah cubs is very low and it was amazing to see how this little one was mimicking everything it’s mother did. Am hoping to see it survive on my next visit | image captured with th OMD E M-1 MK II and the 300 mm f4 pro lens | #olympusinspired #shaky8000 #instaanimal #igscwildlife #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotography #exclusive_animals #wildlifeplanet #dehazeco #wildlifephoto #animalsaddict #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix #ourplanetdaily #fantastic_earth #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_seekers #planet_of_animals #wildlife_perfection #natgeo #planetuntamed #aashnamalanii #worldofcats #cheetahs #natgeocreatıve #outdoorphotographer #worldphotoorg #worldphotographicforum #worldphotographyforum

Four-month-old leopard cub playing with mother at @thejaoreserve in the Okavango Delta in Botswana. As the cubs grow older, their play gets more aggressive.The mother is still tolerant but a little less patient. **This month I will be posting images from this leopard family project every day. Please join me and follow as the cubs grow up. @wearewilderness #tubutreecamp #leopard #leopardcub #botswana #okavango #bigcatsforever

• Red-Wattled Lapwing (Vanellus Indicus).📸 The Red-Wattled Lapwing is an asian lapwing or large plover, a wader in the family Charadriidae. Like other lapwings they are ground birds that are incapable of perching. Their characteristic loud alarm calls are indicators of human or animal movements and the sounds have been variously rendered as did he do it or pity to do it leading to the colloquial name of did-he-do-it bird. Usually seen in pairs or small groups and usually not far from water they sometimes form large aggregations in the non-breeding season (winter). They nest in a ground scrape laying three to four camouflaged eggs. Adults near the nest fly around, diving at potential predators while calling noisily. The cryptically patterned chicks hatch and immediately follow their parents to feed, hiding by lying low on the ground or in the grass when threatened. #bird #birds #nature #naturelover #indian #incredibleindia #mumbaikar #dombivlikar #birdsofindia #birdsofinstagram #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #birdfreaks #igbirds #birdextreme #bestbirds #bestbirdshots #birdsofparadise #naturyst #natgeo #bbcearth #animalplanet #discovery #birdphotography #naturephotography #yourshotphotographer #photooftheday #instagood #instagram #nikon
