Photo by @davidliittschwager. This jellyfish is called Pelagia noctiluca. In Europe, it is known as the Mauve Stinger, and elsewhere it’s also known as a Purple-striped jellyfish. Reportedly, this species is bioluminescent, but we didn’t turn out the lights while we were photographing it. There’s always more to do. Photographed on assignment for National Geographic magazine at the Kamo Aquarium. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #onassignment

Top Shot: Sleeping Beauties | Photograph by Fabrice Guerin (@fabriceguerin)
#YourShotPhotographer Fabrice Guerin captured this peaceful moment while on a scientific underwater mission and observed sperm whales half sleeping. He writes, “Nature provides us beautiful surprises. To meet the giant of the oceans is an unforgettable moment. Sperm whales are able to half-sleep in a vertical position. The scientist swam several times among them without disturbing them. He swam from one sperm whale to another like a guest to say hello. Amazing moment!” This photo was selected for April 20, 2018 Daily Dozen.

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.


“So apparently I'm on the cover of a magazine! I mean, I'll be honest, I would rather eat the magazine than show it off in photos, but my mom on the other hand...#dogmomAF” writes @mr_jack_the_lab
