Photos from the Georgia Aquarium

At last I've gotten off my lazy butt and cleaned my memory card from my camera. I took 204 pictures of the exhibits at the Georgia Aquarium, here are the best.

Zebra Turkey Fish



Open mouthed whale shark


Turtle in flight


Todd snapping a pic of the reef exhibit with his cell phone. This exhibit was very impressive. When you walk in, the reef is in front of you, floor to ceiling. Above you, the glass curves, and there is a wave machine right above as well. Every 2 minutes the machine creates a wave, and the music playing in the exhibit swells every time the wave crashes. Beautifully executed.



Todd petting a ray.



Saw fish



Sea horses


Dozing otters


Dah.... DUNT! This is a silouhette of a whale shark.


Octopus against glass


Jellies



Belugas having lunch.


Baby hammerhead



Alligator with reflection.


Alligator above and below.



Alligator distorted.



9 ft ray, or a jumbo jet, it's up to interpretation.

These are gorgeous. The kids loved them. Our fave was the jellyfish. Great pictures!

Jellyfish are beautiful but I frickin' hate 'em. I've had a few run-ins. Ouch.

Ginny, thanks. I am telling you, if you guys are ever in Atlanta, the aquarium is a MUST SEE. The exhibits are incredible. They make you feel like you're in there with them.

TB, when ever we dive off of Lauderdale you can see the Portugese Man o wars floating on the surface. They look like plastic trash floating there. But if you try to pick up the trash... ka-ZOW!

Looks awesome! This is on my to-do list for this year. I'm sure it was quite expensive too, but you can't put a price tag on a good time!

AUGS!!! Where ya been, stranger? How on earth are you??

The dive in the whale shark tank was $280 pp, but the admission to the aquarium was reasonable. Worth it for what you can see. Where else are you going to see 4 whale sharks??
