A jellyfish beached in Orient Point State Park.
little clear or blue floating jellies that have sails and end up on the beach sometimes.
There were a hundred or so of these at the El Playazo beach, many washed up on the sand. There were more to be seen in the waves just offshore, and some trapped in tide pools like this one.
My first ever :) It was a very nice warm and sunny day about 25 outside!! There was about 20 of them around on the sand and in the water!!! :)
Pardon the excessive auto-contrast. It was hard to get a photo of this kind, since they were still alive and in murky shallow water. They were flat and very very blue from side view. Fringe of short tentacles around the outside edge.
Lots of these washed up or in the shallows.
Lots of these washed up too.
