      : There were hundreds of them, dead on the beach. Some of the stingers were at least a couple of feet long.

      Attractive but dangerous.

      I never did get round to finishing off the bathroom sea-scape mural - which was supposed to have jellyfish like that floating along the top. The existing bits of mural largely survived the bathroom being gutted and re-fitted though.

      i think this is a man o war & not a jellyfish! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_Man_o'_War

      i only say this b/c when i was 4 years old i picked one up at hollywood beach in florida & ended up at the doctors office b/c my hands were burning! no fun!

      : Thanks. It is a Man O'War, but I couldn't be bothered to change the title. It's sort of correct :-)

      I agree with beautiful and eww! The lighting really adds to the alien-esque-ness. I like it! Great color, too, btw.
