After Tramontana ( strong wind from north ) to much reflections to use the strobe. But natural light makes the jelly ( pelagia noctiluca ) not ugly. :)

"BY - THE - WIND SAILOR" it's called this small ( about 4cm ), beautiful jellyfish ( lat. Velella velella ). Above water you can see the sail very well and you know why this jelly has that name. wink

Jellyfish Lake? No, just Mediterranean Sea after Tramontana ( strong wind from the north ). There sometimes a lot of pelagic life very close to the coast.
