More periphylla images added

Today, I have added 17 new images of the deep-sea jellyfish Periphylla periphylla - also known as the Alien of the Deep - to the image database. Enjoy this rare creature from the abyss!



Posted on Dec 21, 2008

The images were all taken during a night dive on the Periphylla Safari in Lurefjorden, a fjord just north of Bergen on the norwegian west coast.

During the winter, the Periphylla ventures almost to the surface to breed, and it is possible for divers to experience these magnificent animals even though the depth is 2-300 meters.
