photoblog image White-spotted jellyfish

White-spotted jellyfish

This specimen was seen at the Berlin Zoological Garden. They are said to have only mild venom and are not considered a threat to humans. However they are supposed to be an invasive species. The aquarium provided low light and the constant motion of the jellyfish made it difficult to capture a very crisp focus image.

Despite the problem in the lighting in the aquarium, you've done well with this. It looks like something from outer space.
What an amazing capture!
Ayush Basu: Thanks, Pamela
Did you see the polar bear star, Knut (sp?) there?!
Ayush Basu: I did. But he's all grown up now and not that sweet, cuddly, poor rejected snow white cub that people have in their minds smile
