Jellyfish Changes Direction
In Puget Sound
Along the waterfront
When I first moved to Seattle, I was surprised to see how common jellyfish are in the waters of Puget Sound. During ferry rides, they're easy to spot, usually floating just a couple feet below the surface. I'd soon learn that Puget Sound is home to a variety of marine life, including some resident orca pods and the world's largest octopus, the Giant Pacific octopus.
I was standing along the water's edge when this jellyfish caught my eye. I watched it swim along for a while and then took out my camera. Right after I got the first picture, it decided to change directions and started to swim away from me.
Perhaps it was camera-shy.
