Compass Jellyfish

I’ve been very lucky with jellyfish this summer on Westray.

The jellyfish haven’t been quite so lucky.

This looks like a Compass Jellyfish Chrysaora hysoscella.

Jellyfish can move up and down but every other movement is determined by the tides. These Compass Jellyfish couldn’t steer themselves. That’s irony.
