Was very interesting to watch this jelly change into various shapes. From long flat rolled out to this beautiful symmetrical shape.

Beautiful shot.

Current rig: Sony SLT-alpha55 in Ikelite housing, Sigma 105mm f2.8 DC Macro w/ Ike 5505.58 flat port or Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM behind UWCamStuff custom 5" mini-dome. Dual INON z240 Type IVs triggered with DS51 for TTL mimicry, or DS51 alone with home-made ringflash assy for macro.

 

Topside, unhoused: Sony SLT-alpha99, Sigma 150-500mm + 1.4TC (Saving for Sony 70-400 G2), Sigma 15mm diagonal fish, Sony 24-70mm f2.8 CZ, Tamron 180mm f2.8 Macro...all the gear and nary a clue...

Thank you all, my pleasure for sharing and glad you liked it!:)

scubamarli, thank you for identifying the creature, do you have a link to accurate information on it. I have read now a few sites, but they are contradicting one another?

Look under Cestum veneris — or just plain ctenophore. What is the conflicting information? The best source is probably this paper, if you are able to download it.
