So I'm not happy with ...
... how these photos turned out so could use some comments.
First is shot of large fish in an aquarium. I used ISO 800 to get sufficient shutter speed to stop motion, custom white balance, and positioned lens so parallel to aquarium glass. Post editing - tried to remove grain. Angel Fish
Second is an outdoor shot in very cloudy weather, in fact it's raining at the horizon. The photo turned out very blue. Is this one of those situations where you just come back tomorrow? Salt Marsh
Bi-Weekly Challenge "Macro"
This past summer we bought a small fishing boat for my guy Doug and his dad to have some male bonding time out on the Peshtigo river . Here is Doug holding his first catch of summer of 2009. As you can see it was quite small .. he had to throw that one back into the water.. He did catch two Smallmouth Bass (macro) later that day... and it was delicious :)
Wishing you all a great day .. :)
blessings, Ms Judi
Went to Cabo a few years back and ran into the not so Little Mermaid. This Marlin came right out of the ground in the midst of all the parked cars. We were so taken back we had to have a drink in the Caba Waba Cantina. I know the statue shots should have been cropped, but I still can't figure out how to crop them without screwing up the resoulution. By the way, the drink shot was made by the bar tender. That is me on the left, my sister in law in the middle, and my oldest brother on the right.

~ Monterey Bay Aquarium ~
Janet and I had taken a trip to San Diego as you know ,and while we were coming back home to Sacramento, we visitied the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey. Super nice building and lots to look at.
Check this odd one out... it's an Egg Yolk Jelly fish.
One of my favorites... a Blue Tang. So much color on these fish. Wonderful place to shoot.

Memphis Zoo Entrance and Aquarium.
Main entrance. Has an Egyptian theme.
Obelisk. Just inside the main entrance.
Cat House Cafe. Used to be the house for the big cats before they moved them to natural habitat enclosures.
Come and get me.
Lionfish. Didn't like this shot but it is Barb's favorite fish so you suffer so I don't have to.
Comments and criticisms welcome as always. Probably post some more animal shots tomorrow. That's your last warning.

Dancing Tree AJ if you look in the window you will see the reflection of my sister who was coaching me as to what pictures she thought I should take. Kay, maybe some day I will convince her to join us online like you and BB.

Is This Evidence?
First inside the mall that I went to for brunch I found a fish pond. There were pennies on the bottom - evidence that someone had thrown them in there.

Something is fishy here...
Sorry there are so many, It was tough picking out the good ones since there were so many.
This is a little extra I found from a future photographica addict. I think "hmmm I wonder if my son was playing around with my camera again???"

So hey, that's what fish do, but, I am hoping to make it a bit more interesting. I'm thinking of throwing in a Piranha or two, or maybe a small Beluga. That should make life a bit more interesting for Biscuits.
