Jellyfish at the Shedd Aquarium, Chicago, November 2013.
It looks like jellyfish in SPACE!
I was just thinking with Mary Beth said. That’s a beautiful picture.
I’ll third Mary Beth’s opinion.
In fact, it probably is a space ship! Where else does John get his ideas? The OMW universe? IT’S ALL REAL!
Nah, that’s just Cousin Dave.
He’s like that most days.
It’s the Mothership.
You mean, that’s not a popcorn kernel flying to Pluto?
Great Picture. We were there this past weekend with the kids. Really nice facility.
I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy.
Oohh! I just love little squishies..I mean jellies. (It is little right?)
It was in fact tiny.
This reminds of being annoyed a few years back when Hilde and I visited the aquarium at the Albuquerque Biopark. I had my good camera with me, the Mavica that used mini-CDs as a storage medium, and I got some really good shots of their jellyfish tanks. That, of course, was the only time when one of the mini-CDs later decided, “Oh, hey, I’d going to SELF-DESTRUCT and you’ll never — NEVER! — be able to recover those photos you wanted to keep, BWAA-HA-HA-HA!!!”
(The Biopark is well worth visiting if you’re ever in Albuquerque. Also the Natural History museum there.)
Which reminds me: The Bipark’s gift shop had plushie versions of jellyfish in their gift shop. Really cute, but I couldn’t help thinking that leading kids to think of jellyfish as “cuddly” was probably a bad idea.
Awesome! A space jelly.
Awesome. You can write and are a photographer. Nice shot.
Picture is great. North Carolina has a nice acquarium on the barrier island Emerald Isle, you can pet little rays…
I’m getting an email for every post, somehow… perhaps you can fix that for me John? Sorry for the hassle!
Another “jellyfish in spaaaaaace!” reaction here. :-) Also, that is very beautiful.
Yea, I clicked ‘notify me of new posts via Email’ once thinking it was ‘notify me of new comments’. Which it was not.
