Tease your visual sense with a tantalizing glimpse of the naturally inspiring beauty of one of the world's most remote and unexlored undersea environments, Alaska's Aleutian Islands. This 8 x 10-inch print makes a great gift, or hang it on your wall! The image 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.
