This is a really cool shot of this under the sea dweller, it looks as though it were from outer space putting on a firework show celebrating the new year, and then they land and eat us(lol).Take care, hope to see more of your wonderful captures. :)

I can appreciate that you say the "photo cannot do justice to the beauty of this amazing creature", but I think you did a pretty fine job in trying. It is absolutely amazing. The light emitted from this "underwater alien" is something not even Steven Spielberg could reproduce in his "Close encounters of the 3rd kind". From my research this photo seems to be a TrekNature first and thereby qualifies for my theme of "RARE or SIGNIFICANT contributions to TN".
An excellent result under rather difficult circumstances. These animals are continuously moving in a pulsating fashion and you obviously were not allowed to use any fill-in flash thus having to deal with very low light conditions.
Great work and TFS.

Your bright comb jelly is a beauty indeed, I share your view that it could be better, at least a little more in-focus, then it would be perfect. However I do not share your belief that it is a Beroe species, I'm not sure but it superficially looks like a Bolinopsis species.

What a luminiscent capture!
I like the clear capture you were able to get from the aquarium, with all that different colours on it.
Wish you a very Happy New Year and all the best to you and your family.

Maybe not as sharp as possible, but a very rare image on TN. Probably not very easy to photograph , even in an aquarium.
