Wildlife - Jellyfish

I like this shot because it looks like I photographed this jellyfish with an underwater camera. I was standing on the flight deck when I noticed it in the water below. It was an absolutely calm day, not a ripple on the surface. We were on station, so we weren't moving at all. The jellyfish was slowly propelling itself past the fantail of the ship. As I followed it, shooting as I walked, it moved into an area where the shadow of the ship cut the reflections on the water's surface, making the jelly look like it was floating in outer space.
