Spotted Jelly at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

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.

    1. 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.
