I know why they were probably doing it, but if I tell, I fear they may kill me.

MABJ Haha. Secret government training to spy on other nations. Train shrimp commandos to infiltrate their water :p

Fdsh5 Maybe they were practicing military formations. You have to be ready for claw to claw combat at any time.

Like towards Mecca. That is funny.

Perhaps they were listening to some music that only their tiny ears could hear.

moosenart Maybe this is similar to the guy who's shrimp all swam right before it rained.......

Michiba54 It could be some type of survival instinct to blend in...or your about to be their next blood sacrifice. Good luck

Beer The best you would have got was an iPhone pic. The surface of the bowl isn't the smoothest finish, so the phone tries to focus on that. maybe I could have done something with my macro lens. I also would have had to turn the lights on, which probably would have taken them out of their trance.
I'll try if it happens again.

Maybe it's time I sell my 35mm SLRs and get a DSLR. They are just sitting collecting dust.
Anybody want some Minolta Maxxum 7000's? I've got three good bodies with some accessories. They are actually great cameras. Pretty advanced for pre DSLR technology. I just never use them anymore. Ebay here I come!
