      Just glad my son noticed it before I stood on it – apparently this one stings!

    They look so interesting and have beautiful patterns, but I don’t like to swim in the near of them. If you see one, there’re normally lots more nearby …
    Beautiful composition, Jude. Have been thinking about you a lot lately.
    Greetings from tthe Rhine Valley. x

      Thanks Dina. I was lucky not to stand on this one, it was right next to me. All is going well and it is nice to be back home.

    What a wonderful design, and the colours are great – nature is fantastic! And well captured by you

      Thanks Sue 🙂

    It’s a beauty but they give me the shudders. 🙂 🙂

      Ages since I last saw one like this. A few blobs on the beach in St Ives a while ago.

    Wow, this doesn’t look real! As said above, nature is wonderful (helped by your photography).

  6. What a stunner (and a stinger!): the pattern on the creature beneath the pattern of ripples is wonderful. And a bonus that you were walking with your boy after the last horrible few weeks.

      It was an amazing sight. A new beach for me even though it is much closer to where I normally go. The water was exquisite – clear and warm, though we could only paddle as it is a kite-surfing designated area. And yes, lovely to have him with me.

    Lovely photo; and amazing-looking jelly. I’ve never seen one quite like that before.

  8. Joanne Sisco says:

    Wow – I’ve never wanted to get close enough to one to notice how beautiful they are!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I got quite a shock when I looked down and it was right next to me!

  9. Sue Slaght says:

    It’s a beauty but glad to hear you didn’t step on it. Also glad to hear you are back home. Must feel good. Hoping your son continues to improve. Xo

  10. How beautiful! What perfection that is. Isn’t nature amazing?

  11. Tina Schell says:

    Really beautifully captured Jude. They’re nasty but it’s just self defense, poor creatures!

  12. A beautiful capture, I had never seen a jelly fish like this before either :o)

  13. Lucid Gypsy says:

    It’s good to see a live one 🙂

    I remember these from the Oregon Coast. They meant “get out of the water” to my mom.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I’m not a fan of finding them either! Though I rarely see them here.

I like a like, but I love a chat
