J is for Jellyfish on ABC Wednesday


Japanese Sea Nettle Jellyfish


Umbrella Jellyfish

These two jellyfish photos were taken last year at the New England Aquarium. Click here to see the Amazing Jellies exhibit at the aquarium.

If you ever get a chance to go to Boston, it's one site you shouldn't miss. They have the most amazing penguin exhibit and a 4-story ocean tank filled with 150 species.

For additional ABC Wednesday photos, please visit Mrs. Nesbitt's Place.

Great shots and idea! :)

Amazing pictures - you must have taken a whole lot to get these!

I'm never comfortable with these - maybe it is the stinging variety that frightens me.

A good J!

Really great shots! I was always scared I'd step on a jellyfish on the beach.

Lovely shade of blue!

Jellyfish as part of dinner in Asia is better than being burnt at the beach
Great choice

Great shots of the jellies. I saw a terrific exhibit at the Monterey aquarium a few years ago. They are absolutely fascinating behind glass. Very painful when stung by one while swimming in the ocean.

Wow! For a moment I thought that they're some computer graphics that you came up with... :)

Remember seeing one along Singapore's beach when I was little. Actually wanted to poke it. lol

Thank you everyone for your comments. The jellyfishes photos didn't turn out as well as I hoped since I only had my pocket-sized point & shoot camera with me.
