Which way to the beach?

Hurrah! I found a Compass jellyfish! Chrysaora hysoscella. Terrible picture I know…. but these guys really are incredibly beautiful. They have 24 tenticles arranged in 8 groups of three. Common around U.K waters, get yourself down to the beach while the weather is warm and see if you can say hi to one. Yes…. yes they do sting, so no cuddles please.
