Hello Jitti,
I like this close-up shot of the tiny crab as it's feeds off of the little sand pellets. Nicely composed and showing good detail and beautiful color. I have seen similar crabs on the beach and they usually move extremely fast. It blends in perfectly with it's surroundings.

Ciao Jitti, great camouflage for soldier crab, fine details wonderful natural colors, splendid light and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
