    ... bartjeej for his well constructed image. This was a close contest with nearly 3/4 of the images attracting votes.

    Thanks all!:smile::flowers_2:
    It is indeed a jellyfish. I was on the Dutch island of Ameland for the weekend, which lies on the border between the North Sea and the Wadden Sea. The latter is so shallow that much of the seabed is exposed at low tide (save for some trenches and pools), which is what got this jellyfish stranded. I joined an excursion on the seabed with the Dutch park services, but if you want, you can even walk across the sea bed from the island to the mainland!

    (the jellyfish, by the way, doesn't eat clams but it just got stranded on a seashell deposit, and because it's translucent it looks like it ate a few of them:wink:)

    Hooray!!! I thought this was such a great image - the image quality was very good but it was the scene that I loved the most. I found it both funny and a bit surreal. It sounds like a wonderful place and I hope if you have more photos that you'll share them with us. Congratulations to you, Bart!:drinks:
