Underwater Photography at the Norwalk Aquarium
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.

An active octopus busily moves around in her tank, with a dead fish cleverly kept hanging out of her mouth for later.
