Cover: Weedy Sea Dragon

Georgia Aquarium at Pemberton Place in Downtown Atlanta, the world's largest aquarium, announced a few months ago that they had hatched the largest brood of baby Weedy Sea Dragons of any aquarium...there were more than 100 babies!

Georgia Aquarium quickly became a sensation among tourists and locals. I've been countless times in the less than two years I've been back in Atlanta. In the last two years they've added the "AT&T Dolphin Tales" show and exhibit—amazing! And they've changed their pricing structure to include a new "Total Ticket", which includes general admission, the 3D movie experience, and the dolphin show.

Of all the animals living at Georgia Aquarium, the Weedy Sea Dragon seems, to me, to be the most difficult to photograph with a conventional camera. I'd taken probably hundreds of photos of them before I got this shot...and it was totally worth it! These guys live in the Cold Water Quest gallery.

Enjoy this pre-sized Facebook Cover photo, which you can copy here, and then head over to the wanderlust ATLANTA's Facebook Page where you can enjoy others. Happy touring!
