Locals are alarmed after more than 100 short-finned pilot whales washed up on Indian shores, less than 400 miles from the southern city of Chennai. Fishermen and authorities are working together to slowly return each surviving animal to the water.

The operation on Tuesday morning had rescuers trying to resuscitate the whales, each of which weighs about a ton, with at least 36 of the animals being taken back one by one to the sea, the Hindustan Times reports. The total number animals washed ashore was put at 120. Rescue efforts are ongoing at this time.

Jellyfish are among the most impossibly elegant, ethereal and eccentric-looking animals known to man. While many are also extremely dangerous, Russian marine biologistAlexander Semenov finds their hypnotic beauty so captivating that he’s prepared to dive in some of the world’s harshest, coldest oceans in order to capture their magnificence. The result of his endeavors can be seen in the following photographs, which were taken in locations such as the White Sea – which sits within the Arctic Circle – and the Sea of Okhotsk.

Head of the diving team at Moscow State University’s White Sea biological research station, Semenov explains on his website that he has become accustomed to diving in “unfavorable” conditions, and is dedicated to capturing the beauty of the deep on camera.

Many of his photographs feature jellyfish, which are members of the Cnidarian phylum, and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. For instance, the following images show the incredible lion’s mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata), which dwells in the chilly waters of the northern Atlantic and northern Pacific oceans, and is the largest species of jellyfish.
