Cyanea Arctica captured by photographer Viktor Lyagushkin

In the White Sea, beauty is around you all the time. Near the surface, an Arctic Cyanea jellyfish swims, posing in front of photographer Viktor Lyagushkin.

Spreading its tentacles, the jellyfish patiently waits for some innocent plankton to get into the nets. Then the cnidocytes (stinging cells) and the digestive system will do their part. For a human, contact with tentacles will be unpleasant, but not fatal. However, despite the fact that the jellyfish was really close, no one touched it :)
