[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I spent a holiday in Cayo Levisa, a little cuban island, I was impressed by the large èresence of this jellyfish "Physalia PhysaliS".
It' a very dangerous type, today I've read that it arrived in the Mediterranean sea, an undesired visitor...

Hi Giorgio.
It is really amazing specimen and you have pictured it also amazingly. Simply great shapes, terrific reproduction of t=its texture and all other attractive details. Lights and colours, as well as composition of the shot are superb. My best wishes and compliments.

Hi Giorgio,

Excellent capture. Its really beatiful jelly fish. We could see your reflection throught the blue reflecting jelly. Nice capture!


Espectaculares los colores de la Carabela portuguesa, efectivamente son muy peligrosos. Los colores quedaron totalmente vividos sobre la hemosa arena blanca. Me encanta el reflejo de ustedes tres en el cuerpo de la Carabela. Las habia visto en algunas playas del Caribe, pero no recuerdo que tuvieran ese color rosado en el borde.

Ciao Giorgio,
An interesting capture and your note showing how we humans continue to ruin nature.

You "shot" the animal just in time i.e. the float has already started to deflate on the right side... how big was it?

I guess, you were kneeling in the wet sand to get this angle and reflections, quite unusual!

I like the way you presented this big jellyfish, and also the strong frame fits well in this case.

Good photographic technique,
Kind regards
Ciao Ingrid

Yes, they can be fatal. The BEST remedy is vinigar and better still is URINE. That can save one's life.
I know these species quite well.
