After everything was ready for the Condo Warming party on Saturday, Leanne took us to the Dallas Aquarium. We’d only been one other time (with Diane and Jonathan when they still lived in the town she liked to call “Louisville”).
It was super-crowded and full of children whose adults don’t parent them, but we still had a great time.
There are a lot of bad photos (curved glass, people bumping into me, reflections, etc.), but there are a few gems in the group, too. And, we’d never seen so much porn in one day!
Actually, they are Pygmie-sized something other than monkeys, but Monkey Porn is funnier. And yes, those are his privates on display for all.
Look how fast this guy was moving!
Even I found it hard to be a ‘Gator Hater when they are curled up and cuddling….
I really cranked the settings to the extreme to get any shot at all of the bats….
We watched these turtles for a long time. The smaller one “bottomed out” on the log and was stuck there flapping his legs and tail trying to get enough leverage to move back into the water. Like most critters, the bigger one decided he wanted to be there, so he came along and “rescued” the smaller one back into the water. The whole scene was quite comical. (And, as we were leaving, a third, even larger turtle was headed up the log.)
These seahorses were amazing to watch (and ridiculously difficult to photograph!)
I have an entire series I’m calling Animated Anemone. As soon as I figure out how to animate the image series, I’ll put that online, too.
Turtle porn wasn’t nearly as “interesting” as Monkey Porn.
