It’s The “Running Of The Red Crabs!”
It’s that time of year again – one of nature’s most fascinating displays. As The Guardian reported:
“Tens of millions of red crabs migrate every year in Australia’s Christmas Island. They crawl across from the forest to the coast in a journey that starts with the first rainfall of the wet season.”
As you can see, they are expected: roads are closed so the crabs can cross specially built roads and bridges to the water.
What a sight!
Here is a video that captures it:
Always terrific reporting by The Guardian – it reminds me of a wild moment I had in Cabo:

I also followed some sandpipers as they worked a beach on the California coast as well:
