Featured Photo: Floating Jellies (Shedd Aquarium; Chicago, Illinois; USA)
These ethereal beings shift through seas in many shapes, sizes and forms. I felt the stings of tiny jellies while snorkeling in the British Virgin Islands a few years ago and have learned to be alert for them in ocean waters. Watching them undulate behind glass at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago was a notably more relaxed experience. Capturing their images without the help of a flash or tripod was challenging, but a slow film speed, low f-stop and anchored elbows helped. So did holding my breath as if I were underwater again.
