Jellyfish (also known as jellies or sea jellies or a stage of the life cycle of Medusozoa) are free-swimming members of the phylum Cnidaria. Medusa is another word for jellyfish, and refers to any free-swimming jellyfish life stages among animals in the phylum. Jellyfish have multiple morphologies that represent cnidarian classes including the Scyphozoa (over 200 species), Staurozoa (about 50 species), Cubozoa (about 20 species), and Hydrozoa (about 1000–1500 species that make jellyfish and many more that do not). Taken at the Mandalay Bay Sharp Reef Aquarium.

Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the blue & yellow with very good sharpness on the jellyfish considering this was shot through glass or perplex. Tfs!

Jellyfish are beautiful and mysterious creatures, that always amaze me, as I like to visit aquariums. With their usually small size and low aquarium light they are hard to photograph even though they dont move fast. This look good although not totally sharp, maybe bigger ISO would have been useful to get shorter exposure.

nice the view as the presentation of the yellow Jellyfish in this blue backdrop of Las Vegas, Aquarium. I like the vivid colours as the light management of the sea jelly.

Hello, well this is a departure for you out in the Wild West, but very welcome indeed. Interesting and fascinating creature. Good colors. The sharpness is wanting perhaps because it was a hand held shot indoors.

A superb composition, which quickly attracts the eye by its beautiful color, this lovely yellow highlighting on the violet background. A perfect realization of this beautiful work.
Have a good day.

I wouldn't like to get acquainted with a such underwater, Eleu, but seeing and taking a marvelous photo like you present here - is a desire of any photographer, I think.
Fabulous taken through a glassed tank, it's transparency is notable.
Exclent stuff shown.
