[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis) at the beach of Jibacoa. In case of wind blowing towards the beach these interesting creatures are arriving in great number. It's tentacles are venomous and a contact with skin can be very painful. So it's better to stay out of the sea if the wrong wind blows.

Amazing species and very well captured. Excellent color with nice details.
Thanks for showing such beautiful species,
