Photogenic fish

Discovery of the day: aquarium fish are fascinated by cameras.

I was at Volare in Brunswick St., and noticed an aquarium full of large orange fish. As large orange fish suspended in water make good objects to photograph, I took out my camera. As I approached, the fish flocked to the lens. Whenever I moved the camera up or down to get different angles, the fish would immediately swarm towards the lens. It seemed that the cheeky little buggers loved having their pictures taken.

Cool pics nonetheless. I made one of them wallpaper. :)

I also recently discovered this little Brunswick Street gem. My favourite is the huge pleco (aka Suckermouth Catfish). I have one a tiny one at home (about the length of a matchstick), but these huge ones are great.

Yeah, you do make the best wallpaper. I've had the Melbourne autumn leaves on my desktop for weeks now.
