Many thanks Leanne, Mette and Judy. I thought it would make an unusual macro too. And your right Leanne - I don't think I ever looked at a lobster (certainly not a live one) quite that closely before - they are truly weird creatures, like something out of Star Wars it seems!

Thank you one and all, for your very kind words of congratulations. I'm so excited! Plus, I just returned home from picking up and trying out my NEW CANON 10D, so this is a delightful end to a very special day!!!! :-)

I just love this shot. I am a big Sci-Fi buff and at first it does look alien, they way you captured this is so proffessinal and superbly done. I just love love it.

Hi Sandra - thanks for commenting on my photo. I took this shot with a Nikon Coolpix 4500, which has a fixed lens, but an excellent macro setting. I'm always amazed with the quality of the macro shots I can take with this simple camera.
