[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A manatee in the Singapore zoo. They nurse their young. They are often found in Florida state waterways in the USA. A modern problem is the boat propellers cut them as they swim, injuring and killing them. They are curious, and gentle, often swimmining up to humans.

Well seen Gloria, I htink this one suffers from the manatee moving and some reflections in the glass. It is nice to see this creature though. I might also have been tempted to crop/clone out the frame at the bottom right.

Good work and thanks for posting.

Thanks for sharing this gentle creature with us Gloria,(also called Dugong,I believe).I think Paul has pretty much summed it up. These through the glass shots can be difficult,and sometimes you just have to grasp the moment.

I have never seen one of these up close and I think it would be a beautiful moment to have one of these guys swim up to one.

Thanks for posting

One of my favorite water mammals...I will have to look into my archives and find my manatee photos now! I see them all the time in the wild when I visit family in Florida. Nice capture of a hard to photograph subject!

Gloria, you captured a strange one. The glass and water blurrs it a bit. But I like it all the same. Thanx for sharing.
