Poised for Takeoff
Butterfly and Flower
This is one of those big, iridescent blue butterflies. Unfortunately they never seem to display their bright colors while standing still.
I was struck by how in this profile and with this pose, the toad's head looks like a classic dinosaur head.
Orange and purple
Not an especially noteworthy photo - I just like the color scheme.
Locomotion appendages of a yellow starfish.
On this visit I had the good fortune to see the octopus out and about. Managed to get a few close-up shots of its tentacles against the class.
Clownfish and Anemonies
This mass of tentacles looks surreal enough to belong in an illustrated Lovecraft story.
Spare a penny, guv?
The sort of thing you get your foot caught in and drown if you're not careful. Note small anemone growing on its shell at bottom.
Some kind of tarantula, I think.
