Underwater Photography at the Norwalk Aquarium

by Kathryn Blanco / Nov 03, 2012 / 0 comments

For this class assignment for the Youth Travel Blogging Mentorship Program, I had to do some underwater photography. However, seeing as I’m living in the middle of Connecticut in October, that wasn’t really an option. Instead, here are some photos taken at the Norwalk Aquarium. (Note: as you will see, not all species photographed are indigenous to Connecticut waters.)

 

Enjoy a little tour through the wet and wonderful world of aquatic animals.
