Flying Jellyfish – Underwater Photography by Alexander Semenov

Jellyfish are some of the last things you would want to see in the beach. They’re icky, they’re slimy, and they sting. The only way they could possibly get worse was if they could fly. Well, Russian photographer Alexander Semenov has apparently photographed a few specimens doing just that. He has spent the better part of his career documenting oceanic wildlife. Alexander is a zoologist who  specializes in the study of invertebrates. Underwater photography was just a hobby of his, until he started taking underwater pictures with his old DSLR camera and became fascinated with the results. Don’t worry, jellyfish haven’t yet learned to fly, Alexander’s amazing ‘flying’ jellyfish photographs were actually taken underwater from an upward angle.
