I found this one on a beach in Porto Seguro (Safe Haven). Unfortunately, I don't know how to identify it.

The Portuguese arrived in Brazil in 1500. They are officially considered the people who discovered the country. When they arrived, they reached Porto Seguro, for the place offered great conditions to the Portuguese fleet at the time.

Today, Porto Seguro has around 130,000 inhabitants. According to the locals I talked to, tourism is an activity that takes place all over the year. Of course, in summer the vibration is bigger, as well as during carnival.

One of the things I like the most in Porto Seguro is this: there are beaches to those who enjoy crowds and like action and to those who prefer a calm atmosphere. If one wants a quiet beach, he/she can go to the beaches in Arraial D'Ajuda, for example, a village right beside Porto Seguro. If one wants Axé Music (a very popular rhythm in Brazil) and people all around, the right choice are the beaches in Porto Seguro.

Hola Livio,
a nice picture showing the crab in its natural colours. The sand is just the right background. In combination with pretty good focus and sharpness, this helps to show the crab very clear.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Livio,
You sure got this little fellow's attention.
He seems to be staring at you with those eyes at the end of those stems.
Kind of surreal!
The details are very sharp.
The white parts are a tad bright, but the POV sure is perfect.
TFS. : )

Hello Livio,
A very fine capture of this crab. Sharp details and fine colours. It looks as it it is just about to start digging a whole in the sand. Pehaps you could add its size in the note?
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Livio,
A very nice photo of a Ghost Crab. Excellent color and POV. Well captured.


hello livio,
nice shot, the pov and the composition is food, looks like its posing for you here,
tfs & regards

Oh, I wish I can visit your country someday Livio, it seems so nice and interesting! This is a beautiful capture of this crab. I like this composition, great clarity and beautiful tones of colors. It has beautiful eyes :) Thanks,

Olá Lívio,
Excelente registro!
Nuance perfeita; ótimos detalhes proporcionados por um POV ídem.
O caranguejo parece estar posando para a foto!
Acho esses animais muito interessantes: aparência, feição da boca, olhos saltados e com movimentos independentes, enfim.
Digno de um belo registro... como esse!

What a pretty crab this is Livio. How big is it? It looks like the sand is quite yellow too, so I think it would be quite camouphlaged in the water.
We don't get many crabs on TN, so it is good to see,
