Jellyfish are not to be trifled with, yet few creatures are as beautiful in their fragility.
The medusa is the third stage in a jellyfish’s life. First they are tiny polyps clinging to a surface under the sea, then they become small floaters, and then they “bloom” into these butterflies of the sea.

Great photo LSH!
Thank you! The aquarium in Golden Gate Park deserves the credit for giving this little guy such a brilliant background 🙂
pretty when they are floating about like that, i just don’t like touching them in the sea 🙂 but we often had them when we were at the Black sea and as long as one didn’t bother them in their path it was ok, always felt sorry seeing any washing up on the beach…
Yes, my brother lives in Australia and they can be deadly there!
