Jellies as Living Art

Full confession: I study jellies because they are beautiful. They are also unbearably fascinating, but what first attracted me to jellies was their incredible grace and elegance. To celebrate their beauty, here are some pictures that could just as easily be found in an art museum as in a book on jellies.

These multicolored Crambionella are worthy of a spot in an art museum http://prunus-capulim.tumblr.com/
