New Aquarium

We had a chance to visit the newly remodeled aquarium at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo a few weeks ago.  If you haven't seen it yet I would highly recommend going.  It's wonderful!  And since I haven't had any photos on here for a while I thought I'd share a few of my favorites from our zoo visit.  I took all of these photos with my 50mm lens.  I just love what you can do with this lens, especially in the aquarium.  Enjoy and thanks for stopping!

  1. Looks like fun! As always, love the pictures.

  2. Excellent photos! I'm not sure we'll be getting to the zoo this year. I kind of want to wait until next year when Maddie can really enjoy it.

  3. Jen, your photos are phenomenal. We will have to check it out. Love your turtle pic!
