There were thousands of these jellyfish in the waters off Poverty Point camping area in the Great Sandy National Park. The coolest thing was that they had attracted several large green sea turtles to feed. My husband and I headed out in our flimsy inflatable kayak hoping to see a turtle up close (I was irrationally terrified by the whole situation, being a born-and-bred inlander) but they were all surfacing a long distance away from us. Then suddenly this huge turtle popped up right next to our boat with a massive noise like a whale blowing air from its blowhole. I completely froze up!!! The turtle saw us, freaked out, and dived... and I missed my chance for a shot, I just sat there gaping!!
