Totally agree. LOL
Looks like a delicious dried up worm too.

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:

It looks so nice, it looks like someone sprinkled magical dust on it.

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

Jaime,

Hope that soldier makes it to adulthood for ya.

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