Red Crabs, by Shahnaz Parvin

While visiting Nijhum Dwip, a cluster of islands in the shallow estuary of the Bay of Bengal, we were mesmerized by its natural beauty. When my friends and I were walking on the sand, and talking about how beautiful nature could be; we located some red crabs. It was my first time to see them. They are really small and quickly disappeared into the sand. We started to run towards them just for fun. Seeing us, one local boy came and caught one, but didn’t kept that in his hand for long; so I had to wait there for a while, lying down on the sand with my 50mm, and went as close as possible; then when it appeared again I took couple of its photographs.
