Ruby Tuesday: Shrimp on the Hoof
Believe it or not, this fellow really is that red. I don't know which impressed me more, his color or his whiskers. I hope the ones I've been scarfing down all these years aren't this cute.
*Update Sept.16: I saw this in a fish store at the Farmers Market. A friend tells me this critter is kept in salt water aquaria as a pet, rather than ending up as a colorful snack. Which would make sense, as it's really small. Like ... shrimpy.
