03.18.11 - Discus & Friends


Haven't done a real photoshoot in a while, so I had to put the camera to work! And I should have cleaned the glass better before shooting!! Just a few pics of my wild discus from John/Snookn and the other tank inhabitants.

For those wondering, pics were taken with a Nikon D90, Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8, and a SB-900 speedlight. Enjoy!
