While downloading images from my memory card, I came across this shot of a male Abdopus abaculas. I can't remember if I posted it, but I thought I would share it. I love the papillae. Given the season, I was thinking of Photoshoping tiny colored glass balls on them, but resisted the impulse. Enjoy!

Wow! That is a beautiful animal, the papillae almost look like they are sculpted out of glass with how fine they are.

Roy,
I wanted to add a sleigh but to get even close on matching detail, I would have had to plagiarize someone ELSE's photo (:wink:)
