Here's lookin' at ya!
This jelly did not look where it was going possibly because it had "blueberry pie in the eye" or otherwise it was a serious case of mistaken identity. It looks like it clung to that cuttlebone for dear life.
Well spotted and captured and with an attention-grabbing note to go with it. But that (I have learned) is normally the case with most of your postings. Informative, interesting, funny, or sometimes even a little weird, but always fascinating. Great colours, details, and exposure with a good composition.
Good work MF and TFS.
intriguing shot, i wasn't sure what i was looking at until i read your note! The details you've caught are great, very well spotted.
this photo you have up-loaded is something I have never before seen yet let imagined could even exist.I don't even know how to critique such a thing as it is so alien to me,but for what it is worth you did one heck of a job in your capture of this critter and thank you for sharing it with us all.

Cool Jay, Almost looks like a one-eyed sea monster! You have an "eye" for the shot ;}}
Well seen, well taken.
A very impressive capture!
It reminds me some of the psicodelia of the 60's...
So curious the round form and the parts that leaves from it, nice blue colour and dotted silouettes.
The close approach worked great to show us this magnificent detail.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
Hi Jay, great shot of this Jelly. Almost looks like a cyclops looking at you. I've never seen one like this, did some surfing to see if I could identify it, and couldn't (yet). I'm wondering if maybe it was a polyp (stage) and still attached to the cuttlebone. You didn't try to scrape it off did you? I'm guessing it was a recent wash up as it's still maintaining its deep blue colour. Very nice find on your part.
Hi Jay. Most interesting observation of this strange combination of life and death. Good notes and presentation. TFS. Murray.
