MORE FISHY STUFF

I haven't posted anything in a while. I haven't been anywhere to take pictures so I'll continue with some pictures from the Long Beach Aquarium. They're not perfect but I think they're worth sharing.

This is, let me see if I can remember what it was... a leafy seahorse? No, a Leafy Sea Dragon.




And... a starfish that was plastered against the window allowing perfect viewing of it's belly:



This sea turtle was as long as I was tall swimming back and forth across the huge tank:



I lucked up and was right on time to see a diver in one of the huge tanks. One of the guides in the crowd was actually carrying on a conversation with her. I wasn't paying any attention to what they were talking about (smile):

These are fantastic, especially considering they have been taken through glass.

The Dong - Thanks and I'll definitely check out that blog.

Saphotographs - Taking it through the glass wasn't too bad so long as I remembered the glare. And I've got to remember it's okay to use a flash.

Klaus, Me And My Camera, and Lin - Thank you all so much. So glad you liked them! :-)
