Well, isn't this a beauty.

It looks amazing. believed to be about 5 to 6 years old, the odds of finding it are astronomical, yet it was found.. I think, rather luckily.
It's things like this that bring into perspective how much we need to look after our environment as not only is it a lesson to us but it brings us a rare smile and sense of wonder too.

An extremely rare chequered lobster has been plucked from the seabed in Yorkshire by stunned fisherman.

The crustacean - dubbed 'Harley Quin' for it's bizarre red and black chequered appearance - is being analysed by marine experts who claim it is a rarity of 50million-to-one.

The lobster was found about 10 miles from Bridlington, East Yorks, by a fishermen, who passed it onto the Scarborough Sea Life Centre in North Yorks.

That is cool! He is going to have to get a name and start predicting ball games! My guess is that between him and the Octopus he wouldn't fair too well.

This Spring I found a bi-colored poppy out front. I grow them every year but this was the first bi-colored. It is interesting in that even the seedpod has a color split down the middle.

Maybe it's just oil stained.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

The lobster is photoshopped!

Just kiddin'

I see blue, yellow and brown/black. What a wild looking color scheme!

Very cool.

It almost looks like some sort of genetically modified designer product.

Yeah, that's something we have to consider... just what was going on in the genes when this one popped out of it's 'shell'

Imagine the parents

Nemo kinda has nothing on this guy..

I wonder if they're going to need to change the 50 million to 1 odds. There was the lobster caught in 2006 that looked half raw and half cooked - literally color split down the middle of it...

And this one about half way down the page that's not only half blue and half black/orange - it's also half male and half female!

Regardless, they all look mighty tasty!
