Award Shortlist   


Many of my recent up-loads have shown the activities at Mui Ne beach and its port on the South China Sea coast.

The coracles (round boats made of woven bamboo) are very attractive and I wanted to take some which were turned upside down as they look like the shells of some gigantic insects.

While I was taking pictures of V5, I got a fleeting glimpse of a child. Intrigued, I moved around the coracles and found this little boy hidding. I managed to grab a few photos before he hid completely.

His Mum was nearby (V6) collecting some crab shells.

Hoping you will like this cheeky little boy. The pictures are not perfect as I had to be quick as he was moving fast. As I find them nice and interesting I post them for your enjoyment.

Thank you for your comments on the previous up-loads and in particular “the Flotilla”.
Have a nice evening,

Great candid shots JNC. Sometimes those crab shells will be dried first then crumble to very small pieces to mix with livestock feeds for more calcium intake most especially with ducks or chickens.
