As the internet’s #1 “jelly-like blob” site, AskaNaturalist.com couldn’t resist linking to this very cool microphotography video of pond life. If you go about 50 seconds in, you’ll see actual bryozoan polyps (the colonial creatures that form the most common jelly-like blobs) doing their filter-feeding thing. Despite the sometimes over the top audio, the entire video is fascinating, and I highly recommend the segment that begins around 3:30. It shows tiny hydra catching even tinier creatures, daphnia, in their tendrils. Amazing photography that gives an incredible glimpse of a world we rarely see.
