    lovely colours!
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    If you never told me that this was shot in an aquarium, i thought it was done in the sea.

    It's really very nice!

    Very interesting! Thanks for sharing!
    Cheers!

    Aurelia aurita grows up to about 30 cm - I guess this one was approx. half as big.

    Public aquarium?? That's very good, knowing how their display lighting is usually never enough and how thick their glass is.

    Very impressive shot, my friend!
    That polyphony of color nuances, pageantry and dept is amazing!

    Hi Andreas,

    The details are amazing despite the slight 'noise'. Jellyfishes behind thick glass and not able to use flash really make this type of pictures very challenging.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Hi,
    thank you for your kind words - especially since they come from such talented and skilled photographers. It was kind of disappointing not being able to use flash guns, the good thing about it was the fact, that one was forced to concentrate on non-flash photos ;-)
