If you saw my last post you would have seen the above unexplained image. Most people knew it was some sort of sea jelly.
Although not a true jellyfish, it is a type of comb jelly, (perhaps Mnemiopsis?)
In the first image the jelly is inverted and at rest, sort of folding back on itself. I like how it’s so abstracted and looks somewhat like a drawing.
The following images show that same sea jelly in motion. This little Atlantic comb jelly is only about 1cm long. I photographed it with a macro lens, while it was temporarily captured in a bucket. (click on images for a larger view)
