2. Tenta{c}tive approach for capturing water-wise motion

Upon spotting a spawning jellyfish depositing her larvae on a stoney beach.

  • Crouch down, pull out your cell phone, turn on the video camera app.
  • Get as close to the jellyfish as you can.
  • Keep an eye on the water. When you look through the screen in this close-up encounter scenario, it’s difficult to judge distances between the camera and the water. Be aware that sudden surges in the the water can wash the poisonous tentacles onto your hands and feet.
