Pet Shop Horse

By KarenFB
We visited an 'Aquatic Centre' yesterday (I needed a barley straw bale for the garden pond), they had some gorgeous fishes and a variety of other aquatic life, including some Seahorses. I couldn't resist a quick snap............with the shop owner keeping a very close eye on me!! Blush

I've had to do quite a bit of work in Elements 9 to remove many 'blobs' from the background - the aquarium glass wasn't as clean as perhaps it should be!

Years ago I was the first person in Britain to breed seahorses in an aquarium.
Don't tell anyone but they did it themselves.

Lovely shot today!
