Charleston Aquarium

Went to the Aquarium in Charleston and had a great day out playing and taking photos.   This was a great place to visit – no feelings of sadness due to animals in cages and I’m pretty OK with fish in tanks – especially this big  🙂  I used to scuba dive quite a lot years ago and have not been underwater for many years but this was a definite inspiration to go back – this is such a wondrous and quiet world that is so different from ours.

Being that I love turtles it was pretty special to be able to see them this close and there were many different kinds.  Absolutely love the way the jellyfish shots came out since I didn’t think I would be able to capture their glow and they ended up posing very nicely.

They also rescue some birds that would otherwise not have made it and I got a shot of an eagle close up and he didn’t seem to mind too much.  The little owl was blind so I was told it was OK to use flash while shooting it, which made it come out much better than the eagle shot.
