Saturday Snapshot - September 7

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Here are some of the Aquarium pictures I mentioned in last week's post.  We did bring our DSLR with us, but I found that I actually had better pictures with my iPhone.  There were parts of the Aquarium that were just not conducive to any photography (like the Passages of the Deep exhibit), but I still managed to get some good instagrams!

Jellyfish!

This guy just got up and posed for pictures!

Speaking of Instagrams, my username over there is mdawnott and I'd love to follow some of you!  Because most of my pictures are of my children, I've set my profile to private.  But, if you leave your Instagram username in the comments, I'll follow you and then, if you'd like to follow me back, I'll approve your request.

  6. I haven't taken my children to an aquarium since the older two were very small, we don't live too close to one, but we belong to and go to our local zoo often. It is hard to get good shots, but your look great. I haven't tried instagram, but I would like to.

  7. That blue is so intense on the first photo. My kids always loved zoos and aquariums when they were little too.

  16. What great pictures, particularly the stunning jellyfish. The otter looks much bigger that a British one, not that I have seen many.
