Description

Three jellyfish with red centres underneath. Being washed on and off the beach, didn't seem to be pulsating at all so may have been too battered already. The first photo show one stranded and folded back on itself showing underneath.

Description

Here are two photos of Cyanea capillata or Lion's Mane jellies. After not seeing any on the beaches for a couple of months, today I found six dead ones on the beach. One photo shows a dead or dying Cyanea capillata still in the water. Each was about a foot across.
