Ctenophores, commonly known as comb jellies, exhibit a captivating natural phenomenon known as iridescence, which holds significant esthetic value. Iridescence in ctenophores refers to their ability to display a dazzling array of colors that change when viewed from different angles. This iridescence is primarily due to the interaction of light with microscopic, transparent, and specialized structures on the ctenophore's body, such as cilia, combs, or other light-diffracting elements. The dynamic interplay of colors as ctenophores move through the water adds a touch of magic and mystery to the underwater realm, making them fascinating subjects for photographers, artists, and nature enthusiasts.
