Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Awwwww! I love them! I think I’ve met that dolphin before! He must be a really good swimmer! 😉 MY PLT is going to be animals today too! I hope this one goes on for awhile! It’s FUN!

    Oh… and my ally? Yes – you have seen it before — with Mom walking through it. It was my Saturday Photo Hunt for Narrow – many weeks ago! Good memory!

  2. Quilly – love the turtle! great shots again. RE my post – sorry. Bit crass I know. Not meant to make light of tragedy – just a silly poignancy really. Not meant to offend. Forgiven?

  3. are the animals int he tanks looking at us the way we look at them, i wonder…
    great shots again!
    (and yes, i’ve heard of the trick with shooting through glass before but clear shots are still not easy to achieve)

  4. What wonderful pictures! Aren’t they just the cutest things? What a lovely experience for you with wonderful memories!

  5. Cath — forgiven — since I was never offended ….

    Polona — hmmmm, I’ll remember that :p

    Dr. John — thank you. I like the turtle, too!

    Robert — every day …..

    Jules — yes. This is a rescued turtle. Every turtle in the tank has a name or a letter. Turtles with names are those who cannot be returned to the wild. This little one’s name is Kunia.

    Ames — my greatest memory was getting so tied up in my photographing that I let a student walk away unattended. Bad teacher. Bad.

    R&J — every day!
