Oregon Aquarium and OSU Marine Science Center
Sometimes the best way to see nature is to go to a nature center. It is the only way to see some creatures.
These wonderful jellies are about 7 inches in diameter. They are in constant motion moving up, down, sideways and diagonally. They always move head first with the tentacles trailing.
The size of a large dinner plate or platter, these translucent wonders move in every direction. The interior parts also pulsate.
Wave movement keeps these colorful anemones in constant motion. Lovely.
Set up to mimic actual tide pools, the water surges and drains. In this shot the water was draining.
A learning center where touching is not only allowed, it is encouraged.
