Colonizing a barren lava flow. Endemic & endangered. This is on National Park Service land & was highlighted by an interpretive sign, so I don't think I'm giving away any secrets by revealing its location.

Nonnative. Led me on a merry hide-and-seek, but finally caught it in all its glory. I can see why a certain corporation chose this species as its mascot. It doesn't get much cuter!

Pallid Ghost Crab (Ocypode pallidula), per www.marinelifephotography.com/marine/arthropods/crabs/ocy.... Carapace width 8-9 mm. Incredible camo, not only in terms of coloration but also behavior. These guys looked uncannily like wind-blown debris, running with a fluid, stop-start motion, and when they froze they were utterly invisible. I just pointed the camera at where I though it had last been and hoped for the best.
