As the school of fish go by, one of the best exchanges I've ever heard: "Where are they coming from?" Reply: "Where are they going?"

The shot of, I think it's you Ryanne, and the lone jellyfish out in the was was like....heaven...yes...that shot reminds me of heaven.

Nice, its like an endless stream of fish!

OH, and I was curious, what DO jellyfish eat?:

"Most jellyfish are passive drifters that feed on small fish and zooplankton that become caught in their tentacles.

"Jellyfish have an incomplete digestive system, meaning that the same orifice is used for both food intake and waste expulsion." -Gross!

Jellyfish have stinging cells called 'cnidocytes', which contains the stinging nematocysts on their tentacles. Whenever a prey comes in contact with a tentacle, hundreds to thousands of nematocysts fire one or another type of "hook and line" into the prey's direction. These stinging cells are thus able to latch onto the prey and the tentacles bring the prey item into their large "mouth" for digestion.

Hmmm. Sounds like a forest for the trees type issue. Take a moment. Stand back from the fishies as they swim by. Oh look....they are in a tank. They are going in a circle. They ain't going anywhere. Now that's metaphor!

thanks for the posts ryannne
