I have a jellyfish photo somewhere and a sea dragon. I took the photos at an aquarium. I'll try to find them. I remember seeing that owl flying straight at me when I looked at it. It was a great owl!!!

A couple of jellyfish photos I took. Not sure of the species name, but it was about the size of a soccer ball.

I believe your photos may be of a Portugese Man of War BooBooBearBecky.

Gosh there were literally hundreds of them washed up on the shore the morning I was visiting. This was the beach near where I worked while living in Mexico.

Could be... those wash up all over the place and they pack a nasty punch. Most of the ones I saw were the same eerie blue color of your photos but I'm remembering seeing some that had tentacles like in these photos, Profile - What is the portugese man of war

I was able to find a site that had very good pics. One of these jellyfish might be what you photographed-
