A visitor at our dock.

 This is a Lion's Mane Jellyfish we spotted next to our dock this morning. We normally see them a dark reddish brown colour, so this was an unusual sight for us. The bell on this jelly is about 18" across and the tentacles were probably about 10-12 feet long. I would have liked to get a picture of this one from in the water, that would have been very cool. This jellyfish can give a nasty sting, but not life threatening.
