Stationary highlights at the S.E.A Aquarium

This is my fourth trip to the S.E.A Aquarium and I can see I’m really making good use of my annual pass. So far, I had been relying on the fastest lens in my arsenal, the Zuiko 50mm F/2.0 lens. The lens is sharp and bright, but focusing on my old E-620 is way too slow to keep up with moving underwater creatures in the dim lightning of the aquarium. After trying for this fourth time, I almost gave up taking anything that moves.

Fortunately, there are still some lazy creatures around like these gigantic lobsters.

I forgotten to check what the following creature is but it seems ‘stuck’ in between the stones and hence made  a good target for me.

The following prawn was trying to move, but the speed it swam seems to equal some current in the water that it appeared stationary, though its feet were working very hard.

As for fishes, most can’t stop swimming and getting a sharp shot was next to impossible with my gear. However, there were still a few that swam around, but do stop once in a while to pose for me.
