Honorable Mention Underwater Art

The Story: At first glance, the behavior of some marine animals goes against our established ideas about these creatures. One of them is the "Upside-down jellyfish", which unlike other known jellyfish moves down the "head". The Latin name of this jellyfish, Cassiopea andromeda, led me to the fanciful notion of her travel to the Andromeda galaxy. The little crabs, hidden inside the jellyfish, are traveling as "stowaways". In my final creative image, I have combined the photo of Cassiopea andromeda jellyfish with an image of the Andromeda galaxy taken by the Hubble telescope.
