Five years ago today I started this blog. It sure doesn’t seem that long!
EDIT: This is not a photo of a Lion’s Mane jelly, or Cyanea.
It is in fact a fried-egg jellyfish (Phacellophora camtschatica) as pointed out by diver Ewan in the comments below.
We saw many of these from the Passing Cloud last summer, and pretty much every time I have been in Gwaii Haanas.
Once again I am in the field, though not so far afield as the trip to Haida Gwaii.
Consequently I may be a bit slow responding to comments, but please leave them if you have thoughts about any of my photos.
Congrats on your blogiversary, Ehpem! To celebrate, I’m going to correct your fishy identification. That there is a Fried-egg jellyfish (Phacellophora camtschatica), a relatively benign cousin of the Lion’s mane, the dread of PNW divers. Looking forward to seeing 5 more years of your photography!
Thanks for the correction Ewan. I used to know more about jellies in the days that I collected them for money for scientists (I was a child then). I did stick my bare arm in a bucket of Cyanea when I was a kid – might as well have shoved it into a wasp’s nest.
Congratulations on your anniversary!
