I enjoyed watching the beachhoppers emerge from their little holes in the sand to feed. It was quite a challenge to photograph something this small without a tripod. They are in nearly constant movement as they bounce around the sand, making a tripod very difficult to use! These tiny creatures provide a food source for ghost crabs and many shore birds.
