15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Life on the Beach

I photographed this little hermit crab on a beach on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. There were literally thousands like him of all sizes scurrying about in all directions with seemingly no purposeful intent in where they were headed. I focused in on this guy and snapped this picture.
