    I will say these are the most trying pics I have taken and considering I don't have fast glass it just added to my frustration. I took a lot of images to get these few. Thanks for the comments.

    How come there is absolutely no background in the shark photos? Is he all alone in an otherwise empty aquarium? If so, poor dear... if one can call a shark a "dear"... erm. Well.

    They are so clear, so sharp! And that one manta smiles so nicely... :)

    Yes, I am yet someone else to be amazed and delighted by the colours, clarity and composition of these photos! Add me to the long list of admirers the 10th time (at least).

    Oh my god, Eric those are stunning. The first one especially. They are extraordinary.
    Sorry to segue but is there any chance you are going to Oshkosh this year? I would love to see what you come up with there.

    I said "Say Cheese" and he gave me a big smile :biglaugh:

    Thanks for the comments. Like I said this is about the hardest photography I have done. All shots are handheld around 30th/sec. I hate using a tripod and don't think you could have as the fish are constantly moving so you have to pan them to get a clear shot. The light was very low.

    Sad to say I doubt I will be at Oshkosh this year, however I may be able to fly in for a day. I have a big show to cover just before and after Oshkosh so I will be busy.

    Great work (as usual).

    What sort of aquarium keeps Jelly Fish!? I used to work in an aquarium, guessing it was a bit smaller than this one you went to. Did you get to go swimming with the sharks??? Now that is fun!
    I know the lighting in these places is pretty crap and weird but you've done an amazing job! Plus the glass is usually covered with little fingerprints and smudges.
    Love the first macaw (I think) shot.
