740 – Shrimps

It wasn’t raining this morning, so I was able to get out for my morning walk. I must admit, I have become a little bit jaded with photographing the high street. But, earlier today I watched a show from one of the photographers I follow on YouTube. It was about what to photograph when you can’t think of anything. His suggestion was to look for and photograph the alphabet. The thing is to learn to look.

Talking of looking. After I spend a bit of time on the Haslar Marina WaveGuard I walk over to the Cockle Ponds, as I enter the car park next to the ponds, I got into the habit of looking for the fox family that’s taken up residence there, just one of them this morning. There have been up to three. I couldn’t help noticing that the cockle ponds had a calm surface, except it wasn’t.

All over the pond were ripples like there were raindrops hitting the surface, but it wasn’t raining, so what was going on? As I started walking along the side of the pond, I noticed movement on the path, small things which I realised were jumping out of and into the pond, trouble is I couldn’t make out what it was.

I have this rather good app, which identifies plants, and fauna it told me I was looking at Decapods, which includes shrimps, and having taken a picture I could see what they were. There were literally thousands of them piling up on the edge of the path. I’d never seen anything like it.

As I was walking away, it was like the shrimps were trying to get away from me. I was reminded of the scene from The Hunt for Red October when the sub is being hounded there was a line of ripples rushing away from me. Again, something else I had never seen. A really interesting walk.
