The Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, Texas, has a building containing some tanks of fish and other sea creatures. One that fascinated me (and most of the crowd passing by) was the lionfish tank. The glass was reasonably clean, the lighting was good, and there were very few items in the tank to obstruct views of the fish. It was nice that there were only a few fish, and they swam around slowly, giving lots of opportunities for interesting shots. I took 100 photos. This was my favorite shot. It was also the first photo I took.
