Egg-Yolk Jellyfish

This very strange looking jellyfish was at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The Egg-Yolk Jellyfish is a fairly large jellyfish with a bell that grows to 2 feet in diameter. It has a weak sting and  feeds mostly on smaller jellyfish.

  1. Since I hate egg yolks, this jelly has always made me cringe a bit, but I still find it fascinating from an “isn’t nature amazing?” standpoint . . . thank you for capturing it!

  2. That is incredible. I think your photos of creatures big and small are my favorites. This would be beautiful in an oversized print to decorate our bedroom that we want to do in a beach theme. Maybe on the mounted box like the elephants. I wonder if people realize that they can buy your incredible photos from your website.

    1. Yes, if anyone is interested in purchasing a print of one or more of my photos, or the digital image, they should just click on the “Contact” link at the top of the blog page and send me a note.
