Caption: Upside-down jellyfish (Cassiopea xamachana) in a mangrove. These sedentary jellyfish are found in shallow tropical waters. The colouring of the tentacles is due to colonies of symbiotic zooxanthellae algae, which provide nutrients for the jellyfish through photosynthesis. Filmed off the coast of Jardines de la Reina, Cuba.
