It's a F2 Tibee. Mom is a F1 imported Tibee (unknown parental lineage) and dad is either a Royal blue or OEBT. Here's a picture of Mom:

So my oebt's have dark brown eggs, does this mean they have been crossed with btoe somewhere along the line? I could have sworn some of mine look like your oebt/royal blues but I just can't take as good of pictures.

Edit: As soon as I posted this he came out for a pic. He's on the underside of a riccia mat so it is very dark. But in the light he is a crystal clear/white color with bright blue tiger stripes. Sorry for the hijack.

Did you get them from me? Do you keep them with BTOE/Royal?

I'm still in awe of these pictures no matter how many times I look. What kind of macro lens do you use on your camera?

Also what kinda flash cause I notice that the in build ones just reflect off the glass and screw the picture up lol

I use the 100 f2.8 with and oldschool 420ez flash. I don't ever shoot with the onboard flash. Pro bodies don't even have a built in flash so that says a lot.

Speedie, the OEBT berried momma I had a few months back had dark green eggs and was one I got from you. Only have one surviving baby from her but he looks like he'll be a regular OEBT (light blue right now, but still developing stripes and color).

I have GOT to bust out my power packs for my flashes and try to get better pics. I'm just so lazy I don't feel like digging them out and charging them. LOL!. But I adore looking at your photos

Hope that soldier makes it to adulthood for ya.

You should really show me what you got. Aren't you a photographer yourself?
