    Default Spot the two shrimps in the picture

    I guess my reclusive Sarong shrimp got over his shyness and decided to strike a pose on a rock.
    The peppermint shrimp to the left looks like he is waiting for his turn to have his photo taken.

    I cannot get a better focus on the shot. The tiny hairs on the sarong shrimp's body undulates continuously (motion camouflage) and is messing up with the camera's auto focus.

    Smile Blue lobster

    I love shrimps! They are very cute and skiddish; I like seeing them at the pet stores. Actually, the pet store over here sometimes has these "blue lobsters" in the aquatic tank, ever seen those? They are really cool. I have a pic of them - sorry for the bad quality, it took this pic with my cellphone.

    I had seen those blue lobsters before, they are beautiful... what kept me from getting one is that I hear they are extremely aggressive and would attack their tankmates.
