The amazing and beautiful jellyfish is one of the more photogenic critters in the ocean. It is really lovely to behold, until it stings you on the lip. I find it surprising that I can be completely covered in neoprene except for my mouth, and the jelly fish can find that one bare spot to sting. Luckily, it isn’t so potent that it affects my dive, except that I move deeper to get out of the jellyfish soup.
There are other beautiful pelagic floaties in the soup as well. This one was decorated with iridescent lights and beautiful innards and no stinging involved here!
