In Monterey, the jellyfish ballet
“We could not get over the beautiful color and grace of these creatures,” writes Bill Sims of Encinitas, Calif. During a port call of their L.A.-to-San Francisco cruise in June, Bill and wife Kris were “awestruck” by jellies at Monterey Bay Aquarium. Using the automatic nighttime setting on his digital camera, Bill got this shot of a magnificent “ballet.” (Bill Sims)
