Of Majestic Kings and unruly Electrons…

First of I would like to introduce his highness that was¬†so kind to really put on a show right at the front glass so I could finally take some decent pictures of this lovely creature. When I looked at the pictures afterwards I just thought it looked so kingly with its crown of seaweed ūüėČ
