I took about 20 shots on the ol' point and shoot in macro mode with various settings and managed to get 1 picture that turned out of my mom-to-be Cherry shrimp! You can even see the little eyes in there!
I didn't know if it was possible with a simple camera that I couldn't focus on my own so when I reviewed the photos on my computer and found this one I literally jumped up and down. :19:
Here she is:

Cool pic! I only have a point and shoot too, I know how hard it is to get a good pi. Sometimes I have to take 50 shots just to get one halfway decent one.

Congrats on the new shrimp to come!

Thanks all!

I just looked after she moved away from the side and over to the java fern and there is a tiny little baby next to her!!!! Maybe one will venture over to the side of the tank and I can get lucky with another picture:D

I video taped her with the cell phone for about an hour, she refuses to give birth on camera. Stubborn!
