The Orange Monster on the Mountain

Tangerine Lobster (2018-09-01 15-22-06a)

Okay, not really a monster and not really a mountain. In fact, it’s not really a lobster. It’s actually a tangerine-colored morph of a Red Swamp Crayfish and this one is maybe an inch and a half long.  Full grown it will be about 4 1/2 inches long.

Class Malacostraca : Order Decapoda : Family Cambaridae : Procambarus clarkii

The photo was taken in an aquarium at the PetCo store at 6236 North Western Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.I took the photo using a Google Pixel 2 XL smartphone. I used Luminar 2018 to edit the image. First I used RAW Develop to raise the contrast, shadows,blacks and clarity. Then I added the Accent-AI, Polarizing, Dehaze, Structure (only to the crayfish and rock) and Denoise filters.
