It's hard to get a good picture of this guy because of his coloring... he always shows up as a yellow blob. But here he looks so cute peeking up over the turbo I had to share.

He's about 3 - 3.5"

 

Does anyone know how to grab a pic of them that shows detail? They fluoresce so much I just can't get the detail and have managed to pull off only a couple of decent pics.

nice P. ciliata! I love their bright yellow morph. as for how to get a decent pic... just take LOTS. that's the only advise i can give.

I have a 4GB card.... lots is all I know. But for the most part they all turn out as above even if I manipulate it as a CRW file.

doesn't work, as you "darken" the photo you just get a darker undetailed blob.

Macro Mode with a manual Focus for up close shots, as well as watching the exposure/shutter speed....

I think those shots are fantastic! Not just in quality but in expression...such a cool shrimp!

 

And that must be a giant turbo...

Does them taste good with tar tar sauce?

 

EW! NO!!! A nice spicy cocktail dip.

Thanks Diane. Ya, it's of those softball size guys... there's nothing in the mantis tank for him to bulldoze.

funny you should mention that. mantis shrimp are actually a popular cantonese dish called shako.

 

apparently they are really nice with roasted peppers, butter and crushed garlic... mmm. *runs off to the lfs*
