19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pacific sea nettle at Monterey Bay Aquarium

This is a picture of two Pacific Sea Nettles drifting through an aquarium exhibit. I have always loved jellies but they caught my attention more than usual. I wanted to capture the jellies with the beauty I saw in the moment, so I kept adjusting my settings and taking pictures until I felt I had a proper representation of their beauty.
