The Aquarium, Part 1

Aarrrrgh Mateys, we ventured towards the sea again today. Goal for today, the Monterey Bay Aquarium. High on our list this time was the Seahorse Exhibit.
DS was already on the lookout!

We had heard that there were really weird and wonderful ones, but nothing prepared us for the amazing animals we saw. This one was tricky he (or she) did not want to look at me, and of course there are tons of people around who also want to make pictures. (and why do people insist on using flash??, even with big signs around that there is no flash allowed?)

Moving on, this is the "Leafy Sea Dragon". All I could do was stare in amazement at these animals. Talk about the perfect camouflage!

There was this black little one,

A little Yellow fella'

The Zebra snout horse.

And very, very tiny ones, my camera had difficulties focussing they were so smal.
