THE FAMOUS BABY BELUGA


This is for sure one of the most amazing aquarium I have ever seen.

I must thank my new friend Nadine, who posed for me yesterday on this, one of her favorite spots in vancouver.
We had such a great time...I have to go back and fully enjoy this place soon.

If you have only one day in Vancouver, you better start early morning with a visit to Stanley Park and the aquarium!!

There is so much to see and delight every single one...over 70,000 animals...hard to imagine, but easy to believe once you step in there...

Here you can see the famous baby beluga whale

This newborn beluga is:

1.35 metres long and weighs about 50 kilograms
slate grey – she will gradually lighten as she matures
wrinkled for the first few weeks
adorable
making history – she’s the first calf in Canada to be born to an aquarium-born beluga.

What a fantastic photo!!! I love aquariums (have 5 tanks at home) but you just add some extra beauty!

Gosh Barbara this is such a lovely combination, the silhouette against the blue water and a baby whale as well...will the whale always be kept in captivity?

Barbara, this amazing aquarium seems to have a lot of photographic potential. Looking forward to see more photos from this spot. Meanwhile, thanks to your friend Nadine, I like the mood this photo portrays.

I am the girl in the photo, and I just want to say I never thought posing in my wedding dress at the Vancouver Aquarium could be so fun, but it was! Barb is an amazing photographer to work with, and as you can see from this shot the photos she took are amazing. Thanks Barb, look forward to seeing more :) Nadine
