“What we are familiar with we cease to see”*

"Many times I have come across these jellyfish washed ashore, but never had I experienced what is commonly known as the Bluebottle in such a way. Captured in real time, Blue is the epitome of the unexpected that I have learned to expect when observing the natural world." - DB
