Pink Ocean Traveler

Jellyfish (Thysanostoma loriferum) with Trevally (Carangoides ferdau). I came across this rarely seen jellyfish on a dusk dive at Alor, Indonesia. The trevally turned out being very protective of its companion and I got bitten multiple times in my hand before it retreated to hide within the Jellyfish' mantle. Rough seas made this split-level shot a challenge, but the overcast sky is what added the dramatic element to the image.
