Artist's Description

Spotted these tiny Hermit Crabs in large numbers in the shallow water, or on the beach at Crowdy Beach, NSW. They had such a variety of shell types and colors I think I’m gunna post a few of these. Even though these are not land based “Crazy” crabs (Coenobita variabilis), they would tumble up the beach and frantically scurry here and there and roll around. Not sure of the species but I think they are Diogenes sp.?? (Maybe Vanessa Pike-Russell, an authority on Hermit Crabs can help here)? They sure were funny watching them through the lens!!
