There are a lot of pics, so I'll try to keep words to a minimum. And these are just a fraction of what I shot and kept; if you like them, you can see about 120 more (no lie) over on my Facebook.
There we are! This cool shot was Emily's suggestion. She's a real photographer, with a degree and everything, not a hobbiest like me.
I had never seen a real live sea turtle before. This one is missing a flipper because she was injured and the aquarium rescued her.
This is a mantis shrimp and I"m a little obsessed. Seriously, they're among the baddest mofos in the whole ocean. Look it up. (No really, do it. The big ones are a foot long and can straight-up punch through aquarium glass.)
Another "hey, this would be a cool shot" suggestion from Emily.
I love how the fish in the foreground is like, "Oh crap, I'm ruining the shot! Ahh!"
I dubbed these guys "the derpfish."
Creeperfrog is creepin'
Reflections usually are annoying, but this one's kind of cool.
Stupid green light on the croc, ruining my shot...
So yeah, make sure to check out that Facebook album if you liked these and want to see more :)
