Barrel Jellyfish off Mumbles Pier

Barrel Jellyfish in water off Mumbles Pier
 photographed by Barry Nicholls

This photograph of a Barrel Jellyfish was take by Barry Nicholls last Tuesday afternoon from the end of Mumbles Pier. Barry said it was about the size of a coffee table. Others have been washed up on the beaches locally (e.g. Oxwich), but seeing them like this in the water is spectacular. Look out for Leatherback Turtles that follow the swarms.
