The swan photo would have been a million times better (and more of them) if I hadn't broken my telephoto lens a few weeks ago. :cry: There were two swans and they were splashing around like crazy and the lighting was just amazing. :( Really bummed out.

Wow. I always look forward to your pictures and am never disappointed. I have never before seen a PP who looked like Floyd, he looks like cold, old steel, beautiful.

Wow this is great. I have my last hermit named Kong!! I also thought the troublemakers photo was funny, as well as the comparison shot with Godzilla and friend! Your hermits are in heaven!

Your hermit habitat is amazing, gorgeous crabs, and great quality pictures. If this site did a hermit crab calender, I'd expect to see pictures of yours in it. I wish I was any good at "interior decorating" pet habitats.
