The Touch Tank is a marvelous--and popular!--place where our Museum Guests can get up close and personal with several aquatic animals native to the Chesapeake Bay--and can even touch some of them with the assistance of our very dedicated volunteers. A special thanks to volunteers Carolyn Jablow, Carly Cook, and Laurel Deffenbaugh who so ably assisted me as I took the photos below. The first photo is a close up of a claw--do you know what it belongs to?
Also, in case you're curious, a few weeks ago I purchased a Nikon D7000 D-SLR camera. The photos above were taken with a Micro-Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G lens. I'm still learning how to take photos with this new camera--with time hopefully I'll improve!
