The Moon Jelly, Aurelia labiata, are named for their translucent, moonlike circular bells. Instead of long, trailing tentacles, moon jellies have a short, fine fringe (cilia) that sweeps food toward the mucous layer on the edges of the bells.
I am a full-time freelance photographer based out of Los Angeles, specializing in landscapes and nature. I was most recently a staff photographer at the Los Angeles Zoo. I still have a very close relationship with the Zoo and my photography can be seen regularly published in the Zoo Magazine, website and various other marketing materials. With a background in animal behavior and marine biology from UCLA, I had always envisioned myself as a Professor teaching and conducting research, but instead I opted to take a leap of faith and pursue my passion for photography. I am so happy, glad, and proud that it has become a reality.
