The first Cyanea ferruginea I've encountered in a long time. It was about 12" across, and washed ashore with the tides.

Description

Tiny fish, up to 2" long, well camouflaged against the silty substrate, maybe because they were partially clear? They swam in little schools of a couple dozen, but they were not well coordinated schools, as individuals veered off in different directions. They were very spooked by my presence.
