  1. * * *Jelly fish [or jellyfish if you'd prefer]. It was washed ashore on one of our beachcombing days.

  2. EEWWW! I remember sitting on one by accident as a child, and I still remember the pain...

    Interesting shot though!
    Happy WW!

  3. Just the thought of sitting on a jellyfish has completely wiped out any ideas I had for a comment...

    Nice shot.

  14. I didn't know what that was I first thought it was a jewlery ! Now I see from the comments that it's Jelly fish ! Brrr I saw a lot in the red sea, but fortunately they were harmless. Here in the North Sea they are dangerous.

  15. Eeeeekk, horrid creatures, even if the shot is beautiful!

  16. I couldn't figure it out, either. I thought it was some kind of shell. My daughter received a nasty sting just last week in the gulf somewhere in Alabama near Florida. Got her right under the butt! Said it felt like being stung by bunches of bees! Not fun at all...

  17. A familiar sight on the beaches but not a good one. (said while rubbing ankle from long ago bite!)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I've been stung by one of those. Ouch. Had to see a doctor as it turns out I'm mighty allergic. Great photo, though, especially when enlarged.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ohhhhhh WOW! I've never seen one that looked like THAT before! Usually they look less... solid. And not nearly so colorful! At least the ones we have HERE! That is really unusual, me thinks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow. Isn't that something? Cool shot.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It looks like a man o war, we don't see many of those on our beach thank goodness.
    Happy Wednesday!

  22. Ugh, we're going to the beach in a few weeks and I will be on the look out for these. Great photo. Very scary to me.

    ReplyDelete
  23. P J!! Yes, it DOES look like a Portuguese Man O' War! That's what I thought but wasn't sure myself. Glad someone else thought so too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. We grew up near Padre Island and I remember being scared to death of those things. I never knew they were so colorful, though!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I never would have guessed!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've seen a smaller version of this on the beach before. You almost feel sorry for it! Although it's kinda grosse LOL

    ReplyDelete
  27. It looks similar to our blue bottles. Depending on the individual, the sting can be acutely painful or just a nuisance. I haven't tried to find out which category I come into!

  28. Great shot - I would not touch that jelly.

    btw. Have been on a real cruise with Captain Lifecruiser herself

  29. Hi Annie,

    You asked on my WW where near Padre I had lived. I grew up in Corpus Christi -- lived there from when I was 10 months to 13 years. I have fond memories of both Corpus and Padre.
