Saddled and berried @ the same time?

I've been shrimpin' for awhile and have never seen this before, is it even possible?



Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again

How long has she been berried? If she's just berrying the saddle may not be 'empty' yet. If she's close to hatching she may be producing the saddle to get rebred as soon as the babies drop, which is not that uncommon. If this is like 2 weeks in from berrying, well, ya got me!

I'd say she's been berried for a week, if that. And i just noticed the saddle today!


I can't believe I've never seen this with my cherries?

Ok... as i was snapping another photo, i noticed 3 other female the same way. Maybe the yellows are so much clearer than the cherries, i've never noticed this before.
