Alex Mustard - Splendid Isolation


A moon jellyfish stands out in a world of golden jellies. This is a marine lake – a body of seawater completely enclosed within an island.

They jellyfish just needs to sunbathe to get its food – the sun powers the algae and the jellyfish absorbs their excess production.
