We went to the MOA and saw an awesome exhibit at the underground aquarium. Take a look at these amazing sea creatures!
I'm fascinated & captivated by seahorses. They are the most interesting looking creatures and they are so much fun to watch. The one up above was zipping through the water by the power of its back fin. How do they move so quickly with just a small fin on their back? It amazes me.
Here are two seahorses sleeping with their tails coiled around each other.
And can you see the seahorse in the photo above? These creatures are known as "Ribbon Pipehorses" and they blend in well with the vegetation that they grasp onto with their tails.
Here are some of my favorite seahorses from the exhibit. I think they are my faves because of their bright and cheery yellow color. Look at the group of them gathered in the Anemone.
This little guy was swimming all around, so I tried to get some "action" shots.
And lookey here, the little guy faced me head on and I got a view of his cute little face from the front. He's looking right at ya!
This last photo is one of my favorites. It's the classic seahorse pose with coiled tail. After seeing the seahorses, it has sparked some inspiration for my work. I am planning on making some seahorse pieces soon. Aren't they amazing animals?I tried to pick out a small sampling of the seahorse photos that I took while at the aquarium. There are some more pics I wanted to share of some of the other sealife at the aquarium. Soon they will find their way to my blog too. Stay tuned! :-)
