Jellyfish Sunburst

Jellyfish Sunburst, 2007 Jellyfish Lake, Palau
Metallic C-Print, 26 x 36 inches

The jellyfish in this image reside in Jellyfish Lake, Palau, an island crater filled by caverns leading to the ocean. Without predators, these jellyfish evolved to lessen their stinging abilities, allowing divers to swim amongst them. Despite their name, jellyfish are not fish, they're marine invertebrates that have pulsated and drifted through the oceans for millions of years. Several species have incredibly potent toxins that are delivered through stinging cells along their tentacles and can be potentially fatal to people. Unlike other aquatic life, they are thriving rather than suffering from the effects of global warming and acidification.
