Bruce, I can't tell from your wonderful photograph how big this jellyfish is. Their size can range from 6.5 feet to a millimeter in bell height. Regardless of their size, one should try to avoid coming into contact with their tentacles. Severe itching and burn-like injuries or even worse may result.
You don't have to worry about that behind glass. Then only admiration is in order, Buddy.

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

They certainly have a unique beauty captured perfectly here.
However, having had a sting long ago I would be steering clear :)

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Such good detail, and looks great against the background. A friend of mine got stung by one a long time ago, and dealt with the after effects for a long time. tigs=^..^=

Hey Mr.C. The JF is about 20" long and the body is about 8" in diameter:)

A nice shot, Bruce. I do believe this is an Orange Moon jelly, a common species, of varying colors. They prefer a warm environment and often live near coastlines in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. Moon jellies can live in saltwater or brackish (mixed salt- and freshwater) environments, and waters between 45- and 70-degrees F. offer them the best chance of survival. While visiting my granddaughters in Mississippi we always find time to spend a day at the Gulf Coast beach, where we often find dead moons stranded by a retreating tide. Even in death they are fascinating.
