STRANGE BEAUTY IN THE DEEP

Smaller aquarium tanks at the Georgia Aquarium
hold more delicate sea life,
some quite strange and other worldly,
some beautiful and quite deadly . . .

like the floating symmetry of jelly fish,
the anchored arms of sea anemones,
and the remarkable herds of sea horses.

Some of the jelly fish tentacles can reach
25-feet in length, with stinging deadly tips.
Same for the sea anemones,
which can paralyze their prey and draw them in.

The sea horse is indeed a fish,
and holds tight with its curling tail.

Whoa horsey!

  9. How unusual.

  13. Rick'm in love with mystery, the life in the deep sea ... when I was a student during high school and college I loved to do work and research on life on the ocean floor, I even think of doing oceanography, then opted for the area of ​​sports and psychology, which was more present in me, but in the period college did a diving course only for I delight in the beauty beneath the ocean, whenever I go to great places to enjoy these beautiful creatures ...
    I love seahorses
    and congratulations for the beautiful pictures that we presented.

    hugs
    Giovanna
