Hi there! I've just finished a trio of pictures you guys might enjoy.

They were all taken at my college (cegep de jonquiere), with a Canon Digital Rebel XTi camera (borrowed at the same college).

The specimens were in the biology labs, except for the stuffed rats, which I did myself. (no animals were harmed for this purpose, they died of natural causes.)

You always make the most adorable creepy things. And of course you stuffed your own rats. Kiss

Science is crafty too.

Interesting stuff... you ever hear about these guys?  Friends of friends... of friends.  Kind of the same feel as your stuff, but maybe even a little darker. 

Love it all!  Great work!

I wish I hadn't just eaten lunch....

Seriously though, these are really good - is that some kind of monkey in the front jar? Its wee wrinkles give me the heebies!

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

I like the first one the best:  the lighting is perfect and the subject is ... well, very YOU.  Very well composed shot, the symmetry works.  Poor little ratties.

[On a sidenote, I tried to check out your college's website, but it just reminded me of how bad my French has become Roll Eyes]

Fortunately, I studied Biology in college and I always thought that strange things floating in jars were always pretty neat.  I really like your pictures, and I admire your sense of composition.  Great job!  Cheesy
