It's been a couple years since we've been to the Aquarium. We try to get memberships to places like this, or the zoo for example. Anyway, it's better than going to the movies. Plus it makes the city better. Right now we only have a membership at the Zoo.

it's pretty big inside. This is one of the sections.

Yes, great pictures. But the spoonbill you refer to is not a spoonbill. It is actually a shoebill. Called that because it's bill resembles a Dutch wooden shoe. They always look to be in a very angry mood.

Very cool pics. That Shoebill looks like he's wearing a covid mask. No wonder he looks angry.

Neat photos. Then there is the 'leg shot'. :roll: The aquarium in Baltimore is also a great place to visit. I was always drawn to the penguins rather than the fish.
