Structure | Or Lack Thereof

This weeks photo prompt is Structure.  So, I am not in the mood to conform today, which is why this post is so late.  I decided it was better to do the post I wanted rather than to do the post that is expected of me.  So here it is.

To me, structure means that something is designed to be a certain way, stay in line, or hold a specific shape.   However, my subject has no real structure… it doesn’t even have a spine.  My subject is a jellyfish.

In the most basic sense, this jelly fish does have structure.  It’s pretty uniformly transparent, its bottom is covered in these tiny hair-like tentacles, which are used to trap prey.

Each of these jellyfish has 4 oral arms, which are used pass trapped prey from the tentacles to the mouth.

It is kind of hard to tell by my photos, but there is a bright ring of four items that sort of resemble a 4 leaf clover, these are the jellyfish’s gonads.  I think the purpose of these are self-explanatory lol.  I say all of this to say, even though jellyfish are flexible and seem to float on the water, whilst changing shape as the water commands, they all still have a basic structure that determines how they look on a more basic level.  So I guess my subject does conform to this weeks photo prompt after all.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post.  Be sure to let me know what you thought in the comments below.
