The Spotted Jelly (Medusa moteada) lives in the shallow lagoons and bays of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. They’re small and can grow to lengths of 1 foot with a bell diameter of about 4 inches. Below the bell are its little mouth-arms that are covered with many tiny mouths that catch and feast on plankton.
The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 6D, EF24-105mm f/4L IS lens, 1/200 sec at f/8, ISO 1000 captured on a Lexar 400x SDXC UHS-1 memory card.

Great shot, Marty! Amazing detail, especially for shooting through glass!
Thanks Randy– I’m still working on perfecting shooting t the Aquarium. It has some very specific challenges and I haven’t quite gotten it to where I want yet. But it’s fun trying and learning.
