Saturday afternoon Nina picture


I really like this picture. It's not masterful work: it's a little out of focus, the water spots on the side of the tank are embarrassing, and she doesn't show up well against the dark soil. However, this is the closest she's ever let me approach with the camera for a picture, so even with all that happening it's more detailed than most of them. Also it's really big if opened in a new window -- in case you want to see the last thing a cricket sees.

And I am planning on cleaning the sides of the tank sometime soon. I don't yet have a good temporary space for her, and I'm nervous about trying to catch her, so I've been putting it off. But soon.

I think it's great, Mr. S.! Like a dinosaur emerging from the mist. Talk about atmospheric! This Nina fan approves.

I thought of Jurassic Park too. Works well as it is, no apologies necessary.

I just love it. I am into succulents, but THAT is most worth complimenting, TANX !!!

Great shot! Nina really does look like a dinosaur. I'd hate to be a cricket in there.

Nina has such beautiful markings.
