Albino cockroach

I like visiting places such as DeviantArt to look at photographs other people have taken of various invertebrates. Generally the quality is quite inspiring - but the content is often titles or labelled in a way that causes error - or propagates confusion.

The photo below shows a cockroach that has just moulted, and has yet to return to its normal colouration.

I pointed this out to Mr ~HairyEyeBall who went on to say that this is how the exhibit he photographed them in labelled them. Mr ~HairyEyeBall has since hidden these comments from the photograph here. Admitting your wrong is something we should all do from time to time!
