“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!


  1. it’s amazing how wonderful things we have on our earth…

  3. coolquilting says:

    fabulous photo!! I love jellyfish too(except the one that stung me!)

  4. Allan G. Smorra says:

    Those Jellyfish exhibits are like looking at a living lava lamp. Nice shot, Janet. Ω

    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.


  11. Lisa says:

    Such a good shot 🙂

    • Thanks, Lisa. It was one of those shots that truly conveyed the beauty I saw. That doesn’t always happen so it made me happy. Thanks for the visit and comment.


  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 😛

    Thank you for sharing this lovely photo 🙂

    • My pleasure. I’m sure touching one would be a very bad idea, but I know what you mean. Fortunately for everyone, these beauties weren’t accessible.


  13. Rose Angelie says:

    So cool! It’s a stunning photo for this amazing creature!

  14. sonyavdg says:

    Stunning photo. The colour is amazing

  15. happyface313 says:

    🙂 Great picture! It looks almost spooky, but definitely very alive!
    Have a very HAPPY weekend! 🙂

  16. Sandra says:

    Fantastic, Janet. Totally awesome (and that’s not a word I normally entertain.) 🙂

  17. The colors and lines are amazing. What a great photo! Cheers

  18. Joanne says:

    AMAZING capture! 🙂

  19. This photo takes my breath away, Janet. Beautiful!

  20. What an amazing shot. Love it so much.

  21. Su Leslie says:

    This is utterly gorgeous Janet. Wow!

  22. Steve says:

    Great shot. I too had that song play over in my head when I saw the theme

    • Sometimes I get a song stuck in my head and simply can’t get it out. I’ll even wake up at night with it running over and over. That can be a bit annoying, to say the least. 🙂


  23. Gorgeous. Somehow reminds me of a lady in a strong wind

  24. Cathy Ulrich says:

    Great shot, Janet! I love those jellyfish!

  25. Wonderful colors and shot, Janet!

  27. kirsten says:

    Stunning picture! The colors are exquisite. It’s some form of Jellyfish, right?

  28. nowathome says:

    Stunning photo, Janet!!

  29. Suzanne says:

    What a wonderful photo. It would look brilliant printed out and framed.

  30. You win! That is a spectacular photo in every way. 🙂

  31. dawnkinster says:

    Lovely! I’ve linked so my readers can come see too.

  32. Tina Schell says:

    Beautiful creature!

  33. steveo says:

    Very nice. I’m glad you found a place post it.

  34. Mother Hen says:

    Pretty cool photo!

  35. Aditix says:

    Lovely picture.

  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.

    This is awesome, Janet 🙂

  42. Imelda says:

    Beautiful photo. Jellyfish are graceful indeed. 🙂

  43. dunelight says:

    Lovely AND creepy…that’s a difficult thing to capture on film. 🙂

  44. pommepal says:

    Another remarkable shot Janet. What sort of IPhone do you have. My very old IPhone 4 is slowly dying and I am wondering what to get next and I love the photos you are getting with yours.

    • I have a 5S, Pauline, which is old these days, too. 🙂 My husband got me a 6 of some sort for Christmas, but I haven’t gotten around to transferring everything to it yet. I’m always afraid I’ll lose something. 🙂
