[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Jellyfish are amongst the most beautiful creatures in the marine world. Although they are extremely simple marine creatures, their life cycle is extremely complex and involves the jellyfish being transformed into different body forms at different stages.

Medusa is another word for jellyfish, because of its resemblance to the snake-haired Gorgon Medusa of the Greek myth. Medusa is the word for jellyfish in Modern Greek, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Polish, Hebrew, Serbian and many other languages.
