Now there are jellyfish and there are jellyfish....

We don't usually get more than a few at this time of year.....but for some reason we seem to have had a lot on our doorstep...





and they vary in size and colour too...









hang on a minute...this isn't a jellyfish....

 nor is this....

 believe me, the jellyfish were way off into the distance...

at the end of the Summer we usually get the windblown variety,
 we look forward to their arrival too....

    1. I know some do give a nasty sting Christine, but not sure about the selection here. The surfers, wear wet-suits anyway, but I don't think anyone has had a problem.
