Pic of the Day

     Spotted Jellyfish -- Tennessee Aquarium; Chattanooga, Tennessee:  This is another jellyfish I photographed at the Tennessee Aquarium over the weekend.  Spotted Jellies were very popular among the visitors, and there were a ton of visitors.  The Spotted Jellies were in a round (360 degree) tank in the middle of the room, and there was a constant flow of people mesmerized by the little jellyfish.  The Spotted  Jellies were small, some the size of quarter and others a little large than a silver dollar.
     The round tank made shooting difficult, but I found if a jelly was close to the glass, and I shot perpendicular to the glass I could get a sharp image.  As you can probably tell, I loved shooting the jellyfish.
     The next jellyfish I will post is even smaller than the Spotted Jelly, and it flashes lights!
