These are just a few of my (too) many shrimp projects. I tend to prefer wild shrimp types, or the more traditional types to the newer line bred or hybrids that are popping up and are all the rage. Regardless, I love them and just wanted to share.

Thanks! Lots of other species to photograph as well, though many of the shrimp breeding tanks are quite minimal, as far as lighting goes, so it is tricky to get good pictures.
