Theme Day: The Creative Artisan

Today's world-wide City Daily Photo theme is "The Creative Artisan."  I like to showcase distinctly Costa Rican interpretations of the Daily Photo themes, such as last month's photo of monkeys crossing the street for the theme of pedestrians.

So, today I am stretching the interpretation of the theme by choosing a photo that shows the artisans of mother nature.  These artistic patterns in the sand are a work in progress by tiny crabs that crawl beneath the sand and leave little piles of sand pushed up in their tracks.

This process reminds me of a miniature, abstract version of the Nazca Lines in Peru.

My son, Stuart, has even taken a video showing these little lines as they are being created.  It is not exactly a high drama, action sequence.

This week we have photos from the bottom of the Grand Canyon, including a photo of the endangered chubb fish, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

To see how other City Daily Photo bloggers have interpreted the theme of artisans at work, click on this link.

Mother Nature.....the world's first artist.

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Interesting how the lines flow !

Kate said...

I think that from previous posts the crabs intrigue you. Glad that you aren't too crabby about it! (Ouch, that was pretty lame!)

Judy said...

A natural sand painting is a fun thing to find.

Lowell said...

Very interesting, Dave. I've seen lots of crabs in my lifetime, but didn't know they could make lines like this in the sand.

Maybe 'cause most of the crabs I've know have been of the human variety!

Susie of Arabia said...

Hi Dave - It is pretty artistic!

glenda said...

These are quite interesting!

Suzanne said...

Sometimes the best things in life are free.

brattcat said...

such a unique interpretation of the theme.

Buck said...

I love those little crabs! Here, we have fresh water clams that slowly move through the sand at the bottom of lakes, but the trails are so faint compared to yours. Nice theme day post!
