Wow, what a find, especially positioned like this in the sand! Most of the time jelly fish washing up on shore just look like blobs of jelly. Well captured, Jenny!

Thanks Val - it was a pretty recent one. Not taken a picture of one before

Very well captured Jenny.
Must just have happened as it looks so fresh.

Yes the tide was only about a couple of feet away from it on its way out, so it was very recent.

Very nice shot. I'm no expert but is it a Moon Jellyfish? I've seen some in an aquarium in a low light setting and its fascinating to see them move beneath the water.

I gather it's a Portugese Man of War Frank, but that's just guesswork, from the purple/blue ring around it

I've just looked up Moon Jellyfish and it is similar but then I saw Barrel Jellyfish and it's exactly what I saw. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
