Thanks.... I now have a new desktop background!
awesome pic....too bad mantids aren't shrimp. but if you can enter yours, cozmo is going in
is it a male or female, judging by the pic it looks to be a she
Nice shot. What glass are you using?
Great shot! You gonna enter that in the photo contest?
LOL I see you have. I am sure you will win, I put my sexys in the contest but IMO not even close to that shot of yours. You should send it to National Geographic. My sis did that was some pics she took at the San Diego zoo. Got published. Was pretty cool. Breathtaking picture.
the combination of colors is just astonishing

Travis, yea... they're not technically "shrimp" ... i figured i'd give it a shot.
Matty, yep it's a female.
Instrance: it's regular glass, nothing special.
Helfrich: never thought of the national geographic thing. my pics aren't that good, i just get lucky once in a while.
Thanks again for the comments.
