Lucky the translucent lobster was definitely a favourite, with more than 360 likes.

Fisherman Robinson Russell found this lobster off the coast at Grand Manan while fishing with his crew.

He photographed it right after, completely astonished with the rare specimen he had caught. He had never seen something like it and neither had we.

While taking over our CBC New Brunswick Instagram, Baxter uploaded this shot he took at the Kingston Peninsula. 

“My love for nighttime photography comes from my childhood, I think, how I‘d stay up late just to go out and look up at the stars and wonder. There‘s something special about the tranquillity of the night that makes me feel like a kid again,” he wrote.

The photo ended up with 254 likes.
