At least that's what the jellyfish at the Atlanta Aquarium were thinking, when they spotted Carla M and Shawn Jennings during the Atlanta BP get-together. The jellyfish put their best tentacles forward by illuminating themselves for the special photo op!

I like the way the Jellys look like they are coming in on a bombing raid lol... gotta be frustrating to be cooped up, watched at all day, even for a jellyfish. (do they have brains?) lol

Nice shot Ken.
