meet marina

one of four beluga whales on exhibit at the atlanta aquarium....i loved watching them!  they would swim up to the window, and it really looked as if they were smiling...especially marina.  there was a little girl near the glass and marina would swim right down in front of her on several passes...she even pressed her face up to the glass a few times.  the caretaker said that marina liked children and often came in for closer looks.  i know she made that little girl's day!  :)

                                     

                                            they reminded me of gentle giants..... :)

I have seen them before.....Kindof cool that they find children interesting...I wonder if its because their faces are sooo honest and expressive....-Raven

I wonder how happy they really are cooped up like they are....I always feel so sad for them. Beautiful photos. Bam

Marina is very pretty.  She probably knows an honest face when she sees one (the little girl) LOL.  Have a good week. Barb
