Mystic Aquarium 2008

MYSTIC, CONNECTICUT — In early June 2008 I went to visit Connecticut’s Mystic Aquarium. It was the first time I had tried to take a picture of a jellyfish, so I wasn’t expecting much success. I found them in a massive cylindrical tank in the center of the indoor aquarium.

There are a number of African penguins in an enclosure outside at the aquarium.

One of the first attractions you see are seals and sea lions in large pools.

For a reasonable fee I was able to feed the birds with some birdseed on a stick. The aquarium has a fairly large enclosure where people can walk in and be among the birds.
