Remember my 2014 nature photography calendars (choose between five different themes) are still available for sale. Look in the left sidebar on my website for the most up-to-date discount coupon code. All calendars are made to order in the USA so you support the US economy with your purchase, and a starving artist (me!). I also appreciate any referral through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and of course your blog or website.
Here are a few photos I took during a recent trip to a local aquarium. Aquarium exhibits are poorly lit to enhance your underwater experience, but the darkness is often the cause of blurry pictures. I haven’t mastered this type of photography perfectly, but I still wanted to share a few of these interesting water animals. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.
Here’s a giant Pacific octopus. You’ve got to love those big suction cups.
The crab with the longest legs (up to 10 feet long!) is the Japanese spider crab. All I can say is, yum!
The coconut crab earns its name from its ability to crack a coconut shell with his pincers. And it does eat the coconut meat too!
Undersea anemones are cool looking and this one was very, very red.
Finally, sea jellies are so interesting to look at. They constantly swim underwater, grabbing food as it floats by. All that without a brain. Wow.
