First place at Wetpixel POTW #340

 

The Wetpixel Picture of the Week competition has reached its 340th edition, and my Periphylla image was voted the best of the week.

The theme of the week was 'Jellyfish', and once again the periphylla did very well - it seems to intrigue people over and over again.

The Wetpixel crowd seems especially intrigued, and comments included statements like 'this one does it for me - very nice!' and 'well done'.

Thanks to all for commenting and voting!

It's been a little while since my last victory in this competition, but this is my third win this year. There has been some almosts in between...

Anyway, that means I have three tickets in this year's overall competition!

 
This picture of a crown (or helmet) jelly (Periphylla periphylla) entitled "Alien of the Deep" went to the top in Wetpixel POTW #340.
The jellyfish is a Crown jelly (Periphylla periphylla), photographed in Lurefjorden just north of Bergen on the Norwegian west coast on my annual Periphylla safari hosted by Gulen Dive Resort.
