Yes it is a lot of patience. Plus I do not use a tripod, no use in using one, the shrimps move too much. The camera with the lens is heavy.

I have sat and taken over 100 pictures of shrimp in one sitting just to erase them all because they are no good.

These things are a pain to shoot, but the payoff is when you get that good shot.
