It’s jelly time! Gently pulsing jellies are beautiful to watch, but don’t let these unassuming invertebrates fool you. Their graceful trailing tentacles and oral arms are covered with stinging cells for snaring prey.
Jelly culture is our bread and butter! Aquarists MacKenzie and Tommy take you behind the scenes of the Jelly Lab, where home-made jelly preserves are spread across our exhibits—like so many slices of marine marmalade. Whoa, who’s hungry?

The only time I left the house this week was to visit the aquarium with my children and this Pacific Sea Nettle jellyfish really caught my eye. It’s not normally something that I would shoot but sometimes creating work that is out of the norm leads to a new interest. I don’t think I’ll be abandoning my landscapes or seascapes any time soon but this week I’ve learned that subjects can be found in the unlikeliest of places!
