Haus Des Meeres

Some time ago, I was privileged to visit Haus Des Meeres ( it means "House of the Sea") in Vienna, Austria. It is a public aquarium housing over 10,000 aquatic beings. I think i just love animals and love taking photos of them even more. This outing was not an exception. 

    There are about 9 floors and a lot to see. I started from the topmost floor. I had a good view of the city of Vienna from up there.

Look well into the distance and you can see the Danube tower.
  Now, back to Haus Des Meeres. I had a lovely time taking these photos. It was a bit challenging because I had to do it through glass and glare is a problem. 
   Sorry, I didn't even bother remembering the specific names of the animals, because I was busy taking photos. There are also snakes, crocodiles, a few birds and monkeys. I had a wonderful time and I hope you enjoy the photos.

Beautiful colours!!!!!!

Loved the way it curled its whole body on that branch.

It just stared straight at me

The tank was dark, but I love the blue light. It gave the photo some nice effect.

Close up, love those eyes.

A school of Fish.

`Lunch time: They were been fed at that time, thats why there's a lot of grains in the water.

The largest tank, It spanned about 3 floors. It contained a Shoal of fish. Look, there's shark in front of me.

Till next time........xoxo.
