there was too much light coming in from the window so I created a tent between my camera annd the set up with a blanket (all house and studio lights were turned off for the actual shot)

All images were shot very quickly with my phone, so I apologize for the iffy image quality.

    That’s cute and cool that you made the picture yourself. With the title “Aliens” I was expecting something about Xenomorphs (or as our chum Axe Man calls them, Xemophores) and face huggers and all that sort of thing!
