Shrimp doodle

Time for another birthday!
Today is my father's birthday. It took a bit of time for me to figure out what I was going to make him. Then I remembered that he likes eating shrimp.

Done in size 10. The colors are white, pink, and red.

I couldn't find a pattern for a shrimp in my tatting books or online, so I experimented. It is a simple doodle, attached to a card that reads, "Happy birthday! Here is a little shrimp for your lunch."
My father got a laugh out of it.
I think if I try tatting a shrimp again, I'll make it more detailed.
