Something's Fishy


I had a great time recently at the Denver Aquarium.

Here are some of the fine creatures I met!














As I see it, life is an effort to grip before they slip through one's fingers and slide into oblivion, the startling, the ghastly or the blindingly exquisite fish of the imagination before they whip away on the endless current and are lost for ever in oblivion's black ocean.

The stingray picture is VERY interesting. What the heck is that around it's mouth?

Rays are just so freaky on the underside. Nice photos, Betty.

Well, what are their names??? Some journalist you are. I'm naming the second one Sandy. Or maybe Beelzebub.

There are some really odd creatures in the world. Guess they think the same of us.
