To the underwater photographer, the jellyfish is a great attraction. Especially at the beginning. You know why – because they are no quick runners.
I love taking its photographs. The following rule applies to the jellyfish: “If the stream is taking you to where you want to go, do not resist.” Nevertheless, you will be surprised to find out how persistent and patient this animal can sometimes be. In our sea there aren't many species. However, the most prominent inhabitant of the Black Sea, the Rhizostoma, is worth seeing in action. It's the one that is very big, you see what I mean.
If you want to meet it, you should go into the sea after a storm. Sometimes there are tons of it stuffed between the coastline cliffs. And if you want to touch them, wear gloves anf never touch the jellyfish and the snorkel with the same hand. This piece of advice will protect you from the painful phenomenon of the African lips. We've been there, too.
Despite this unpleasant trait, the jellyfish is an almost perfect and a very beautiful sea creature. At least that's how I see them.
