Photos :: Jellies

One of the coolest things I saw while we were visiting Chicago with Kaylah and Kevin were jellyfish. After a crazy morning of trying to find parking near Shedd Aquarium on the first football game day of the season we finally made our way to see the aquarium and the special Jellies exhibit. I hope you think jellyfish are as neat looking as I do because you are about to see a whole swarm of them.

Don't they blow your mind?! Maybe they just blow my mind. Jellyfish are so awesome to take photos of because they just look so interesting. Kaylah and I both agreed that we probably took more photos of jellyfish than of anything else.

  1. Did you know that a large group of jellies are called a squish?

    On another jelly related note - I once went ocean kayaking with my sister in the Queen Charlottes and was totally surrounded by those fried egg jellies! I was determined it would be the death of me. I survived.

  4. Wicked cool! I went to the Boston Aquarium a few months ago, they had jelly fish that lit up rainbow! I wish I had had a better camera then! They're my favorite next to sea turtles :)

  13. I am SO jealous of those jelly fish pictures. Our Aquarium in Dallas did not have jellies like that. These pictures are so beautiful!

  16. Jellyfish are terrifying especially box jellyfish. Dan and I saw this program about deadliest sea creatures. There's a super tiny jellyfish that's the size of your thumbnail and most often people don't realize they've been stung until they start experiencing symptoms from the injected venom.

    But they are pretty.

  17. These photos are BEAUTIFUL!!
    Last time that I went to the Tennessee Aquarium (you girls would love it!) I took pictures of the jellyfish and they can be hard to capture. I think I only took a few that I REALLY liked.

  24. Wow, this is so cool! While we were at a beach in P.E.I. we saw a lot of washed up jellyfish, they don't look half as cool as those ones though, they were just kind of brown. But really neat! I love these pictures! You're so talented :)
