Marine Life

The Water Gallery here is filled with a lot in its two sections; most of what I photographed this time out was in the first area, including these displays.


I leave off where I began, with a look at some of the inhabitants of the aquarium.

  5. Love what I think are the sulphide worms that resemble match sticks. And, seeing the starfish in motion is special.

  10. That is some skeleton. To me the sea is a dark mysterious place. While I have been out on the sea, I prefer the land. I would love this museum, though!

    @Tamago: they're colourful critters.

    @Beth: fortunately blue whales eat krill.

    @Lowell: I tend to be a land lubber too.

    @Karl: most people wouldn't be familiar with them.

    @Red: the deep sea vents really fascinate me. Such alien life to them.

  19. I don't know if the starfish are grooving to the beat or doing a contortionist's act!!!

    Strange ... meanwhile we seem to know more about the Moon and Mars then about the deep sea of our own Earth ...
