From Natural Selection"While these organised structures might look like the work of an artist, they’re actually just the remnants left behind where a sand bubbler crab’s been snacking.
During low tide they exit their burrows (as seen in the top pic) to scour the sand for tiny bits of organic debris in a radial motion. While eating, the crabs ball the excess sand on their heads, then discard it when it gets too big for them to see over, leaving behind a remarkable-looking reminder which helps them keep from searching for food in the same sand twice.
Each time High Tide returns, the small structures crumble and are washed away, all while leaving behind more food particles to fuel the tiny crab’s next accidentally artistic pursuits.”

Today is my last day living in Portland. I can’t believe it’s already been three months. Brief stop in Seattle, then home to California for a week, Seattle for a few days again, then off to New York until December. And then who knows what after that? I don’t know, but I’m happy.
