Medusa [Jellyfish]

By HELANA
This was taken last summe in La Manga del Mar Menor [Mediterranio], Spain. That was the first tiime I have come across one of them.They are very beautiful. If you get stung by one, you have to go to a doctor because they have a nusty sting. The venom is in the purple line I was told.
Hope you like it.

Love the marbling effect on the water, Elena.

A beautiful, if deadly, looking jellyfish too.

Lovely detail and colour, Elena the water must be very clear. The marbling effect Philip mentions does look good.

She is rather beautiful. Fantastic capture... If you get to touch one put your hands in bleach and hot water for the venom to disolve.
We have them in Portugal as well , mostly after a very churned tide closer to September and Ocober I have had a few encounters...
