Jellyfish: A Vibrant Sea Creature

At America's #1 Aquarium, there are many different kinds (or species) of animals, such as seahorses, stingrays, and eels. One animal I happened upon was a jellyfish. It seemed very vibrant, with its pinkness illuminating the space. So, I captured its beauty. Afterwards, when I looked at the picture, I saw my shadow in it, and there was no way to crop it out. I left it there to create "...an uncertain horror,"-Charles Dickens, "A Christmas Carol".
