Aquarius

I went to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth on the weekend. I remember going before when I was younger, but it was about time for another visit, plus, there’s now the added bonus of having my SLR camera. I was a bit wary about it at first, but it seems as though photography is allowed as long as you disable the flash.

My favourite image is of this Jellyfish, it gives the impression that it’s dancing or as one of my friends said ‘showing you to your seat’.

There was also this one small illuminated tank being used as some sort of viewable hatchery. Inside was a line stretching from either side supporting egg-cases of various fish. I think this one is a dogfish, but there were also lots of rays too. What I hadn’t realised at first, however, was that you could see them (in embryonic form) moving around inside their eggs!
