|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.|

I thought it's related with British Royal Navy or Spanish War Ship!
Amazing species and very well captured. Excellent color with nice details.
Thanks for showing such beautiful species,

Love this super sharp photo of the Portuguese man o' war, no sand to distort the detail and color. The image displays textbook quality of this interesting subject not often shown here on TN. Awesome shot!!
