LOCATION: Papua New Guinea

STORY: “Mangrove upside-down jellyfish (aka Cassiopeia jellies) are found worldwide in shallow, calm lagoon environments. A wonderful and rare opportunity surfaced one day in one of my regular haunts when this one left the bottom and pulsed towards the surface, just under some overhanging trees. The light rays were streaming through the branches and I used the harsh contrast of the shadows to highlight its delicate crown. To me, it’s not a photo of a jellyfish; it’s a photograph of the rays of light, and it just happens to have a beautiful jelly in it.” – Gug
