Beautiful medusas

Medusas, by Karine Gary. Thank you, Karine!

Jellyfish have an almost otherworldly beauty, and so they should. They’re not from another world, but they are from another time; they’ve roamed the seas for at least 500 million years, and possibly longer, making them the oldest multi-organ animal.

EarthSky Facebook friend Karine Gary captured this image of jellyfish in the medusa (adult) stage.

She took the image through rounded glass at the New Brunswick Aquarium and Marine Centre in Shippagan, New Brunswick, Canada.

Thank you, Karine!
