Its a Skeleton Shrimp not sure of the species though. Don't know how many native species there are around Ireland but there is an

introduced one that originates from Japan, Caprella mutica.

 

Cheers,

Flickr says no problem<  https://www.flickr.c.../blogging/#2937  >but it obviously doesn't work any more. Used to be a drop down share box where you could copy the embed code I think?

 

Just another way the team at FlickrHQ have made Flickr more user friendly(read as, Dumbed Down)- https://www.flickr.c...show embed link

Not sure if there is a current workaround Tim. You could have a poke about in their App Garden< https://www.flickr.com/services/ >to see if one of the Slide show generators can still work for you.

 

Personally I detest the new way Flickr does slide shows on site now, especially since I upload low res images. Grainy versions of my 'masterpieces' sliding across my screen at awkward angles 

making a mockery of my compositions really leaves me cold.

 

Cheers,

Jim.

BUMP :bye:

 

Please note the Nexus D90 housing has optical connections for sTTL strobe syncing. Few manufacturers made D90 housings with this important feature.

Fascinating. I do believe I've seen footage of Indigenous Australians hunting for these in mangroves.

In Topic: sea snake question

I clearly see spines on right side white band. Also this crop is from front end of the snake and in the images from article linked by John it

appears the spines are reduced or almost absent on that end of the snake. Perhaps you could ping an email with a link to this thread to

Kanishka Ukuwela. Be very interesting to hear his thoughts.

 

Cheers,

Jim.
