Mediterranean Jelly Dance

The Mediterranean jelly Cotylorhiza tuberculata regularly blooms in the Gulf of Corinth, Greece. This jellyfish species is exceptionally beautiful.

The video below features their summer 2012 bloom. I used my guitar music as score.

Should you wish to watch the high resolution video, please click on the Vimeo icon and then on the "expand" icon (bottom right).

We are grateful to Bernd W├╝rsig / Texas A&M University at Galveston for sponsoring our small video camera and the underwater casing, and to Nina Santostasi for her help in the field.
