Sorting through old folders & found over a hundred photos I'd taken ages ago when I went to Plymouth Aquarium, so decided to have a go at some & upload them for you.
The lighting was very subdued & there where a lot of marks on the glass, but have done my best so I hope you enjoy.

The main image is the main tank, & I was pleasently surprised to see the reflection of the turtle.

V2..."I do not believe it" came to mind when I saw this grumpy fellow.

V3...this one darted towards me, then as soon as I clicked he'd darted away.

V4...This little one seemed so graceful, didn't notice the octopus until I had it up on screen.

V5...Note the smile on this ones face....he/she, was closely following the last one !!!

V6...This little chap was trying very hard to bury himself, but not very successful.

Thank you for the comments on my unknown roses.
I have had some problems with the firm as a second rose, which should have been the beautiful white Pascalli, has turned out to be a pale lemon with hints of red/orange on the tips of the petals.
Needless to say, I will not be dealing with them again even though the first time they did offer a refund or a replacement, but with the second rose they hinted that they thought I might be "trying it on" & wanted me to dig the roses up & return them.
What sort of packing would I have needed to send them back I wonder. lol

Take care everyone, the weekend is nigh.....

A fabulous set of images, Hilary, all great captures. I think your problem with the rose firm needs to be taken to Watchdog! Carol

An awesome set of aquatic images, it was well worth delving into the archives to fish these out. My favourite is v5 the happy little soul with such a comical expression, I also like his cheery yellow colour. V2 is good too, the expression on his face is priceless

Hey hey...nice one with the turtle's reflection, Hilary! Smile And don't those yellow tails on the fishies stand out?? Vs 3 and 4 are reeeally amazing, by the way. So not easy catching these guys through the glass, especially with the kinda light available.

By the way, so glad you're not dealing with the firm anymore. Seriously not on.

Hi Hilary
Excellent collections of fish images, a really valued addition to your lovely photos of flowers!
( Ed's comments reflect the best what I wanted to say but his style I fail to ever achieve :-( )

Great set of colourful images, v4 and v5 looks like he's smiling.
