    Wow - that's very cool, Don! It looks like you photographed it in the palm of someone's hand? Can you give us some idea of the scale? It looks like it must be tiny. But how small is it? And what setup did you use to photograph it?

    It's about half inch long. I used my 70-300 mm lens which has a macro extension. I also used a macro extension for close focus. All hand-held with my on-camera flash.

    Interesting. The last one appears to have lipstick on.

    Thanks guys. Yes. My partner's son opened his evening oyster and found it. He gets the oysters straight out of the sand.
