Ghost Shrimp babies!!

so the work/school scheduled has kept me away from my tank, aside from feeding i have NOT done anything for a couple of months
luckily the tank is well cycled and has been holding, i had 3 Ghost Shrimp (2 females from what i know now) for a while and nothing changed until this inconvenience,
it seems that when you leave your tank alone the inhabitants get busy!!!
i had seen the shrimps berried a couple of times but never seen any babies.
and i would have expected the Guppy population to grow but Ghost Shrimp?
photography is not my forte but with a little effort a baby shrimp can be seen in the upper middle and an adult in the lower middle.

i have about 5 baby Ghost Shrimp frolicking around and Momma is berried again
