#repost @etchedbythesea • • • • • One thing I love about the #deadcrabseaglass prompt from today’s #sunsurfseaglass challenge is how many different crabs we all have on our beaches! I originally made the first image which is a Dungeness crab like we find where I live in California. When someone in Maryland asked for a blue crab I asked if the first wouldn’t work and she was shocked I would suggest such a thing! When I looked up crabs I realized that there are so many kinds, each living in just a few spots in the world. So, I made the blue crab, and then because they can live in any shell they want, even a pretend one, I made a hermit crab. I think I need to make a few more so I’ll take suggestions now! Horseshoe crab definitely on my list, but what else? #crabs#naturephotography#seaglassart#seaglassaddict#seaturtles#seashellsofinstagram#seashell#seaglass#seaglasslove

By @benjhicks: A lot of people ask me about how sea turtles emerge and hatch out of their nest. After following biologists, hiking the beaches for nearly 10 years I’ve only seen a handful emerge in front of me but have seen stragglers a lot. As sand temps get hotter the nests start to get too hot, thus causing them to emerge in daylight. It is not a good thing that we are seeing more of these day time emergences. Shot this with my phone as I waited for almost 1hr 45 mins once we saw a few heads at the surface sleeping at sunrise. Most of the nest has already hatched during the night. It is very important to not disturb them even though time is ticking and the sun was getting higher and higher. Much longer and the late hatchlings would have been taken by biologists to be released at night. Performed under fwc permit. 🐢 . 🎥: @benjhicks
Comment a “☘️” if you’re studying for finals to spread the good luck! If you’re feeling stressed, close your eyes and picture these rolling ocean waves and swaying palm trees with the warm sunshine on your shoulders. 🌞 PC: @wanderingwild_
Blond fur seals are a rare color phase among the hundreds of thousands of black seals that are born on the beaches of frigid South Georgia in the sub-Antarctic. 🐥This young pup stood out so much from its neighbors that I easily returned to it day after day to follow it on its wanderings through the crowded colony🌊🌟 - @FransLanting . 🔔 Turn on my post notifications to stay updated with all of my latest content! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📲 Share this with a friend who’d love it!! . ⚠️This post is not intended for copyright infringement purposes.
