A few weeks ago one of our favorite coves became home to many jellyfish. There were Moon Jellyfish and Lion’s Mane Jellyfish, but the most impressive were the Fried Egg Jellyfish.

From the kayak we watched them surface and dive, and move magically through the water.

They are constantly changing shape, sometimes taking the classic jellyfish shape and then suddenly seeming to be formless.

Taking the images with an underwater camera allows for a different view compared to what you see from the water’s surface. It also becomes a bit of a game gauging just how close to get to the tentacles as I am not that keen at risking being stung. It is amazing just how far the tentacles stretch.
