Moon jellyfishes and the kelp forest from Kumamoto,Kyushu,Japan.The kelp forest will grow during winter time due to cold temperature and it will be disappear by April but Moon jellyfish bloom start to appear sometimes in April and May.This collaboration is very rare and difficult to get it together.I have spent so much time to read high and low tide and sun direction and waiting to come up Moon jellyfishes in the kelp forest for long time.But eventually I got this magical moment and it was worth it.
