I saw one of these in Florida waters once. It had a blue whale in its tentacles.

A little research has showed that it is a photoshop but not in the way you think.
The jellyfish is real and may be known as a lions mane. The diver was added to the photo.
The jellyfish is very large possibly 10 feet in diameter with long tentacles. The added diver to the photo gives a improper perspective (Optical Illusion).

sorry....this post was supposed to go in the candy slot!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
