Portuguese Man-of-War (Physalia physalis)
Pensacola Beach - March 5, 2011







An approaching cold front kicked up the surf today but also pushed in hundreds of jellyfish on the beach today.  Run into one of these stinging jellyfish and you will feel it for sure.  I've never seen so many Portuguese man-of-war on the beach here.  I was out looking for tornadic waterspouts moving northeast just offshore.
