ABC Wednesday -- A is for Aquarium

fish2

For those who don't follow me, Caryn and I foster dogs for OK Yorkie Rescue. What that has to do with this picture may seem a bit far off, but it is really quite simple. On some weekends, we do adoption events at various Petco locations in the metro area. These events run several hours, and, from time to time, there is a bit of boredom in place. During one of these periods, I wandered the store and found myself in their EXCELLENT fish department. Petco (this one was in Norman) has an OUTSTANDING fish area with both saltwater and fresh water fish. I couldn't resist the opportunity to snap these pics.

This is the beginning of a new cycle for the ABC Wednesday Challenge (Round 7, to be exact). Each Wednesday I, along with several other bloggers, will be posting pictures related to that week's letter of the alphabet. Click the link above or the picture below to see the other wonderful posts.

Wonderful Paul what an amazing sight. I always take my camera along with me wherever I go so if I find a slightly laborious task on the cards I pull out the camera and find something interesting to capture!

Thanks so much

I see Nemo! :) I also take my camera with me always (if not the digicam, my cell phone) so I am always ready to take pictures of anything that interests me.

My ABC Wednesday post is up HERE.

Terrific captures, Paul! Our Petco here in Seattle also has a great collection of fish.I always enjoy looking at them when I take my dog in to be groomed. Thanks to you and Caryn for your work with Yorkie Rescue. This was a great way to start Round 7! Have a wonderful day!

Those items on the bottom remind me of periscopes and scuba gear.

Aquarium viewing can take many hours - fascinating stuff going on in there! Great shots!

Love the clown fish!! Nice pics. :)

I do 'meet & greets' for adoption too, just with greyhounds instead of Yorkies!
