    OK, here's my entry. Five crabs celebrating Cinco de Mayo, surrounded by hot peppers and watched over by the Mexican Corn God.

    Guess which crab was the best at taking directions? ;) If you guessed the one that was made in Mexio, you're right, but even he wasn't always cooperative! And the hermit crabs all have contracts saying that they can only work 15 minute days, so we had to take what we could get. The actors in this scene are Grep, Needles, Needlenose and Pushpin. Pushpin never even came out of his shell, but what the heck, we know he was in there! I have never done a set-up shot like this before, and it was harder than expected!

    LOL I love your pics, especially the cute little crab trying to climb up the god!! And setup shots like this are hard, because mine didnt want to stay on set–they all wanted to run away!

  11. Ok, since no one else entered after I got the deadline extended, I rushed to beat the it so at least there would be one more entry! Go figure no one would be up or cooperating...

    Here's an E, diving face into the fiesta:
