A-Z - S is for Shrimp
The Craft Barn alpha challenge continues... we must be nearly a quarter of the way through? This fortnight the challenge was set as S with a shell.
I had wanted to do a skylark for S - one of my favourite birds, but one I've not drawn before. Well, that wasn't going to match with a shell! I settled on Shrimp.
I may be pushing the 'shell' part for some people. But it does have a shell - a carapace, in fact - meaning a shell that covers the head and thorax which are fused as one. Not your traditional shell, I agree, so understand if you feel the need to disqualify me!
I found it so difficult to find photos of these creatures *ahem* not on a plate!
But I did find a few and managed this little chap...
Quite cute little things really!
Thanks for stopping by!
