Jellies, Suckers, and Crabs

Mar 09, 2009 by Janine
The jellyfish exhibit was one of the best at the Georgia Aquarium. There was a cuttlefish tank too, which I loved, but none of the photos turned out any good.

Jellies:









Suckers:



I am not so sure I want to eat crab anymore after seeing these:





Now for a small rant. Many of the exhibits were labeled with these giant NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY signs, such as the crabs. Mostly deep water or easily spooked species. Though I wanted to get good photos, I didnt want to disturb the animals, so I didnt use flash. So it was pretty annoying when some dufus with a cheap pocket camera comes sauntering up, flashing away. Not that the type of camera he was using matters, but still. It happened more than once, with different dufuses at different tanks. To top it all off, when it happened at the octopus tank, a member of the aquarium staff came over, and I bet you can guess who he assumed was using flash. The reject with the 4.99 disposable camera, or the girl with the dslr (flash not even on). I showed him that the flash was off and he was satisfied, meanwhile the flash-happy idiot made his escape.
Rant over, more pics to follow later this week!

Fabulous photos Janine. Re: the rant. Honestly, there are idiots everywhere. I too would have been more than a little ticked off.
