Sea Monsters: Dying Lovers on the Beach

"While yet alive, before their tints had faded, they glistened like the fairest flowers, the product of primitive rivers; and he could hardly trust his senses, as he stood over them, that these jewels should have swam away."

~Henry David Thoreau~

 

These are Portuguese man-of-war; found washed up on the beach during our Florida vacation in December.

 

UPDATE (November 2008): I've deleted all the notes - and it took FOREVER to do so. While I truly do appreciate everyone's attention to my photo, please don't add any more notes. Thanks!
