Well, it's over. It was a great experience. Here are some really bad photos of some of the speakers. It was very dark during the lectures and using the flash only made it worse since it only lit up the heads of the people in front of me. So, since I turned the flash off, the pics got blurry. Being photography challenged, this was the what I got.
lol The first pic is of Bob Fenner and one of the ladies from seahorses.org. Bob was very animated and very friendly. Great guy all around.
Second is a pic of Dr. Ron Shimek. I have nothing positive to say about him so I'll just let that go.
Third pic is of Jorge Gomezjurado. He did a lecture on his captive breeding facility for seahorses. I hope to go visit his place in the near future.
