Tease your visual sense with a tantalizing glimpse of the naturally inspiring beauty of one of the world's most remote and unexplored undersea environments, Alaska's Aleutian Islands. These 5 x 7-inch, blank notecards with envelopes make great gifts. Or use them yourself to dazzle family and friends with images of the awesome Aleutians! The image on this notecard is from a collection of photographs taken in the Aleutians by scuba-diving marine biologists from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the first people to ever see and photograph the undersea world where they dove.
The oval-anchored stalked jelly (Haliclystus stejnegeri) is a jellyfish that waits for its food to pass by, rather than swim in pursuit or drift aimlessly. This species inhabits surge-swept areas and is usually found attached to algae or rocks. It captures food (mostly tiny crustaceans) using its eight multi-tentacled arms.
