Ethereal

Panels continue to explore adaptations of life in the oceans. 


Here we have another look at the blue whale.


Display cases beside it include molluscs, the invertebrates that have an enormous variety and make up a substantial amount of sealife.


Models of larger molluscs are included here.


I paused to take a couple of shots of a panel on life in extreme depths.


Then I took another shot of the whale.


These last two shots are taken close by. An aquarium houses several moon jellies, a strangely graceful and otherworldly animal that can be a challenge to photograph.

  2. It's amazing to me that we don't yet understand the full story of the deep oceans, yet we are merrily destroying them with pollution of every kind, while we hurtle off into space, no doubt to spread some pollution around out there too.
