Blue Monday #19: Grumpy


"Grumpy Looking Fish"
Pine Knoll Shores, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

 Hosted by Smiling Sally

Last week I showed you the main tank at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. This is one of the residents of that tank. I'm not sure how many species they keep in there, but they all seem to be able to co-exist without eating each other. Even the sharks. I'm not an expert on fish, so I wouldn't even have a guess what kind this guy is. But I thought he looked pretty grumpy all things considered.

I agree, Mojo, he looks like he's saying, "Get me out of here, NOW!" Good capture!

We took kids to Atlanta's biggest Aquarium last June. It is really enormous, loved it. Worth a trip.

Great looking Fish, grumpy or not! :D

It was so much fun watching the game last night, wasn't it? A bit exhausted today! :)

I was going to say 'good catch' but thought it was a little fishy ... I am impressed with the shot thru glass retaining 99.99% of its focus
