Lorikeets at the Aquarium

"Are you kidding me?  You spent an afternoon at the Long Beach Aquarium and only took pictures of birds?"


"Aren't you ashamed of yourself?"


Well, here's the thing:  The Aquarium of the Pacific is a wonderful place, especially if you are a non-diver.  The exhibits include fish from Baja, the Northern Pacific and Hawaii.  But I've strapped on a tank and dove among the fish in all these places, so to see them in big glass containers is merely a  substitute for the real McCoy.  But walking through the big aviary among these colorful, feisty little birds?  Now that, I've never done.  I wish I could strap on a tank and go diving in the sky.  Hmmm.  An Ultralight, maybe?
