Yep, I've seen them in action on a ferry in Honduras - it took me a little while to work out what I was looking at as they leapt out of the water to flee the ferry and skimmed off across the waves. They really did look like giant dragonflies at first.
That's spectacular! Aye, fish that fly (more or less) are definitely quite alien like to us.
The popular impression of the blobfish as bulbous and gelatinous is partially an artifact of the decompression damage done to specimens when they are brought to the surface from the extreme depths in which they live. In their natural environment, blobfish appear more typical for their superclass Osteichthyes (bony fish).
