  • Notes

    Encountered while snorkeling outside Saltö in Sweden. The jellies are late this year and have stayed long, this specimen seem to be at the end of it's life as it seem to have lost all it's tentacles. While they are beautiful to see in all colour, i still get a bit uncomfortable whenever i see them while being in the water.
