There are times when my head becomes bleary from baby edits. Yes yes, babies are very cute and all, but sometimes I need editing refreshment. For a pick-me-up treat, I turn to my a supply of Non-Baby-Related Stuff I Photographed But Didn't Have Time To Edit. I already did the funnest photos of course, the Monterey Bay jellies. Not jellyfish
, mind you, the aquarium world is trying to stop misleading people and call them jellies
... and while we're on the subject - sea stars
, not starfish
- who went around naming everything this fish that fish anyways? I don't know what the verdict is on sea slug
vs sea cucumber
. Both are inaccurate, but perhaps slug
is closer, the cucumber
being a vegetable. Were you wondering? Sea slugs are not wormy or sluggy at all. They're actually related to sea stars - the both have radial symmetry, most often five point symmetry. Sand dollars, sea urchins too. They're all Echinoderms
. Got that? Now you can be a marine animal geek at social events.
Time is a-flying by, and it is almost May. May appears to be a popular month - already more bookings than April, and May hasn't even begun. I wonder if after a few years of this, more predictable patterns of busy-ness will emerge. Come back in a few years to this blog and I will post a graph of busy-ness data.
