Flower Hat Jellyfish

Flower Hat Jellyfish fish shedd aquarium chicago photographyPhotograph I took at the Jellies Exhibit at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, Illinois. “Blooms of the flower hat jellies make swimming in waters off Argentina hazardous. The sting of this jelly is painful, leaving a bright rash. In Brazil, blooms of the flower hat jellies interfere with shrimp fishing; the jellies clog their nets and drive shrimp away, probably to deeper water.” from http://www.montereybayaquarium.org
