    Ugggh...that eel. I've seen too many of those close up. "Stick your hand in crack, and you don't get it back, that's the moooorraaaay." But I can't actually tell if that's a moray.

    Great shots though.

    Wow some great shots there! Aquarium work I think is it not?
    Might not be the same as true wild, but still very good work, glass at those places can be a nightmare to work with with reflections and lighting - so good to get such clean shots!

    I'm heading to the Baltimore Aquarium this weekend and was searching the site for helpful info on how to proceed with pics there. These are great. If i got anything near this good I would be thrilled to death.

    Can you offer some advice?

    Aquarium work...yes. It was very difficult to shoot threw the glass. It took me awhile to figure it out...but once I got it, it was on! I took a couple hundred pictures that day. A lot turned out amazing.

    I found that the 2nd picture "creature" was a little harder than the jellies because the tank was really dark. So getting a good picture on it was the worse and this one is the only good one that I got of him. There were some others that were just like him, but white and the tank was lit up. I don't know why the difference in lighting??? They looked like the same species, just different colors.

    Here's one shot above a tank with my polarizer to reduce the glare.

    This cute little fella wouldn't stay still for nothing and bopped around the tank so fast like he was saying look at me look at me. So, the picture didn't turn out as clear I wish it would have.

    Wow, these are incredible! Did you use a polarizing filter to cut down the glare? Anything you want to tell us about how you got such incredible shots is very much appreciated.
