The Madonna of the Penguins
K took this photo--somehow she did not get reflections off the exhibit glass, and her phone does better in low light than my camera does.
This is at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, where we spent most of Wednesday. The penguins follow the Penguin Madonna around, too:
Silly fun statue:
Special jellyfish exhibit!
Blue Iguana, making the perfect model dragon:

Not shown: Mexican axolotl, sea otters, humongous freshwater fish, coral reefs, sea horses, frogs and a giant anaconda possibly 30 feet long. We have no idea who gets to clean that cage. It was a very fun visit--you really need to like fish though because 90% of the exhibits are glorious fish in all colors and sizes. (I was hoping for a few more amphibians, but there are at least two zoos we have not visited yet.)
