The jellyfish, what can I say? I really do love them. Translucent, ethereal and sublime, I find them endlessly fascinating.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium
pulled out all the stops for this exhibit
Here we go with the jellies.
These next two are a series of one jelly
captured in motion.
They're so smooth,
yet raggedy at the same time.
I can't remember for sure,
I think these are crown jellyfish.
Most of these look much better
if you click to enlarge them.
I'd never seen black jellys before.
These are upside down jellyfish.
They live on the ocean floor.
They also come in polka dots
These next shots
are just because I love their motion
This reminds me of Mikhail Baryshnikov,
flying across the stage.
Just one moment later . . .
They also had a lovely art exhibit.
This was made from a plastic soda bottle.
Much better use of a plastic bottle
than throwing it in the trash.
I had pictures of Sea Dragons last time,
but had to include another .
This isn't an exciting picture,
but I loved the "look"
on the seahorses face.
I'm including this picture
because if I ever get another aquarium,
I want it to look just like this.
I took this with the extreme zoom on my SX40.
(most of these shots were taken with my iPhone).
I've never seen a seal smile before.
What a sweet face.
It was a truly wonderful day,
