Today we’re going to talk about jellyfish! Well, to be specific we’re going to look at photos of jellyfish.

Yesterday I snapped a lot of great photos while visiting the National Aquarium at Inner Harbor in Baltimore. Though the wife and I go to the harbor a few times of year we’ve only taken time to visit the National Aquarium once before. It’s a fantastic place and one that just seems to bring out my child like enthusiasm. Well, perhaps it really doesn’t take a lot but, hey, that’s just me.

The Amazing Jellyfish Exhibit at The National Aquarium

While at the Aquarium I got a lot of great photos. Hell, it’s almost impossible not to. There’re so many interesting things to see and there’s all sorts of sea life there. You’ll find sharks, stingrays and all sorts of other fish. I’ll post some those photos later this week but today however we’re going to look at jellyfish. IN fact we went to the National Aquarium the year the jellyfish exhibit opened. Unfortunately we missed seeing it completely. I guess we just walked right past!

This time I made a point of going to see the jellyfish. I’d been told many times that it’s an amazing exhibit. Needless to say everything I’ve heard about it was true. I never knew that these simple creatures could be so beautiful.

If you ever travel to Baltimore be sure to visit the National Aquarium. Also make a point not to miss the jellyfish exhibit. You will not regret it. As for me? I was mesmerized like a 4 year old child!

    1. Thanks Darren:

      There were great subjects photograph. I also love the video I linked at the bottom of the page. To bad I’m video illiterate. It’d be great to be able to make something like that.

      I also looked at the post and started reading till I found out I didn’t have to. (I’m kinda slow like that.) I really love the part about destroying red blood cells. The mere thought leaves you with such warm, fuzzy, feelings inside. 🙂

      Anyway, you have a great day and thank you again for sharing,


      PS. Great profile photo!
