That's a panda indeed. It seems to have a tiny bit of "shadow" to it as well.

haha I like Powerful! These shrimp have grown on me. These are much higher quality than the previous batches I've kept before. Very orange!

That orange one is definitely a beast. Makes me glad they're so small.

You're photos of the blue velvets are just so amazing. I wish I could do them that kind of justice. The eggs on mine are almost ready to hatch, but when I tried to get a picture of the eyes showing I ended up with a blue and orange blob. I guess that's what I get with my $75 Black Friday special.

Kinda reminds me of a spider ready to snatch it's prey huh?

Black Friday specials will not get you amazing photos lol, but they are def capable of good shots. Have you read the manual and try shooting in manual mode or macro mode. Steady hands and lots of lighting will help you focus.

No on the manual, yes on the macro mode. I can get decent shots outdoors or with larger critters, but have not had much luck with shrimp of fish. I have a better (albeit older) camera that I got pretty good with in manual mode, but I lost the memory card. I need to buy a new one for it, but I don't even know what it's called. It's not your standard SD shape.
