“Poetry in motion” comes to mind when I see today’s prompt. I’ll probably have the song stuck in my head all day. 🙂 But for a photo of motion, I offer you this one taken at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo last year in a visit that yielded a plethora of photos of a wonderful day.  I’ve been waiting to use this shot and today’s the day! The photo’s unedited except for the color at the edge.

Have a wonder-filled weekend!

  10. Jellyfish are surreal. When I think of alien beings- which is not very often- I think more along these lines. You’ve done a great job capturing this one!

    • Thanks, Emilio. I agree they’re surreal, not really like anything else and don’t really seem like living beings. Aliens would be an interesting interpretation and they live in an environment alien to us. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. Enjoy your weekend.

  12. alainafae says:

    Photos of jellyfish always compel me to reach out and touch, always followed by the thought that touching would probably a terrible idea 😛

  36. Leya says:

    A truly great capture – fabulous!

    • Thank you so much, Leya, and for stopping by so often. I really appreciate it.

      • Leya says:

        Janet…I know i know – I’m a hopeless case this year. But I’m planning on retiring this autumn – more time for us all!

      • Leya, not only are many of us busy, but when spring comes, it’s just wrong to spend too much time online when nature is calling. And real life is so important! Great news on your retirement, though. Any big plans?

      • Leya says:

        Get to know my husband again…I’ve been working so hard for many years and I believe it requires some time and effort to find each other again. If we stay healthy, we will go travelling together like in the old days. First Switzerland and Scotland this summer, and then back to China. A big country that takes many tours to get to know a bit better. This will be our 4th or 5th trip.

      • That sounds wonderful, Leya, and the best use of time: love + travel. I can’t wait to read about your adventures.

      • Leya says:

        You are very kind – thank you!

  37. thirdeyemom says:

    Just spectacular Janet!

  38. I love this picture. I took a picture of a jellyfish once and it didn’t come out as beautiful as this. It was white and ghostly … and the picture was quite pixellated so I never used it.
