Photos

I was reading the archive of Missyisms blog tonight, and came across a very cool link to Flickr - Camera Toss. The idea being to throw your camera into the air while it's exposing a photo, and post the results. Well some of the results are truly spectacular! I was very impressed.

And speaking of spectacular photos, Stu got a couple of his fish. I'm thoroughly jealous, having hardly ever gotten good photos of my fish. If he doesn't post my favourite, I will :)

Well he said I could, so here it is:
Cherry barb

So, not to be outdone, I went on a mission to get some nice pics of my own. Note to budding photographers: clean the outside of your tanks carefully before starting. Otherwise you get reflections of whatever's on the glass back in your camera. I also think taking the pics with the room light off helped. The camera seemed to have less issues focussing (perhaps less reflections to get confused with).

The white angel:

The black angel:

The glass cat fish: (only successful photo I've ever gotten of them)

The three corys, huddled in a corner away from the light:

A baby krib (only about two centimetres long):

Lots of baby kribs:

So, as you're an expert, what are the long dangly bits on the angel fish for?
