Great photography once again. The AAA casts demonstrate their life like qualities very much when they're photographed outside.

How did you get so many at the bottom there? You really like this model, right? ;D

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

 I really appreciate the compliment as I have long been a fan of good photography of different kinds but have taken few pictures in my lifetime until recently. I do like this model very much.  :) I tend to collect multiples of everything though. Perhaps eventually I will post a photo of my entire collection somewhere on here. It's a real arthropod army!

 Jetoar and Widukind, you are both correct. Even though the antennae were "added in post" and are as thick as the walking legs, :)) I still think this one to be an excellent replica. The colors are magnificent.

A whole family!  ;D

Nice to see photos in a natural setting. I hope you will be entering the diorama contest :)

It's definitely my favorite second to the Stomatopod. Have you seen the larger American lobster? I was thinking about taking some photos of it as it is the only one I have that isn't posted here yet.
