For the Birds

Pictures from our trip to the Audubon Aquarium part two.

I enjoy watching the penguins.
     


The macaws are in the tropical rain forest area on the top floor.  The parakeets are in a big aviary on a lower floor.  The parakeets are friendly if you purchase a little food for a bribe.  The food comes attached to a stick like the one in the picture below.
    

(it's a good film)
Be sure to take time to play with the puppets. 
 

We all had a great time at the aquarium.

Back Story

Christy, Jesse, and I took the Amtrak Crescent from the train depot in Anniston AL to New Orleans for a week of adventure and photography. This train station is a classical revival depot and is listed in the National Registry of Historical Places. Jesse loves to ride the train. Heck, we all love to ride the train. We left August 8, 2013 and returned August 14th. Unfortunately Jeremy couldn’t go this time. He had to work.
Christy’s father was kind enough to drive us to the train station and pick us up so we wouldn’t have to leave a vehicle parked there for a week.
We stayed at our usual place, the historic 905 Royal Hotel in the French Quarter. The 905 Royal was built in the late 1890’s.
  
See what else I’m doing.

Jellies and Friends

Here are the first pictures from our trip to the Audubon Aquarium.
 
 
 Jellyfish are one of my favorite subjects to photograph in aquariums.
 
 I was disappointed with the jellyfish pictures I got on this trip.  I just wasn't able to get many I liked.
 
 Jesse had a great time playing with and around this pressure suit.
