    I was exited to learn that the collective noun for jellyfish was "a bloom", had to google to verify, was disappointed to learn that it's actually "a smack". I call for a vote and my vote goes to "a bloom".

      Yeah, I had to look it up. Wikipedia then pointed to me to this which is why I opted to use bloom instead of smack:

      A group of jellyfish is sometimes called a bloom or a swarm. "Bloom" is usually used for a large group of jellyfish that gather in a small area, but may also have a time component, referring to seasonal increases, or numbers beyond what was expected. Another collective name for a group of jellyfish is a smack, although this term is not commonly used by scientists who study jellyfish.

        Good choice, and very cool pic - I forgot to mention.

    Jelly fish are my favorite animals for this particular reason. They are absolutely gorgeous! Great picture.
