Amazing Photo: Jellyfish Protecting a Young Fish

Jellyfish offers protection to a young fish: (OMG!) Don’t worry, that fish isn’t being eaten by the jellyfish, he’s actually being protected.

This OMG photo was taken by National Geographic photographers in the waters off Moalboal, Phillipines. They attracted this duo by submerging a scaffolding of blinking LED lights deep into the water to see what curious creatures would swim up from the depths to take a look. (Don’t try that with an iPhone!)

Not sure how long the two stayed together, but the fish was clearly seeking protection from all the predators that swim around at night in those dark waters. The jellyfish? I’d like to think he was just happy to have a friend.

Surfing at Sunset In Indonesia: You Can’t Stop the Waves…

Surfing at Sunset Zen Instagram photo – “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf” – Jon Kabat-Zinn

As an archipelago of over 17,000 islands, Indonesia has more than its share of great surfing spots, and this looks like one of the better ones. That beach just keeps going as far as you can see, and it looks like the waves do too.

The lack of detail or identity of the surfer himself makes it easy for us to put ourselves in his place. (which I’d love to do right now) The absence of any architecture on shore helps to make this photo really timeless. From the height of the sun, he’s probably calling it a day, and I can only imagine that it was a good one.
