Moon Jellyfish

Aurelia aurita


I believe these to be Moon Jellies... please help correct me if I am wrong!


Central Oregon Coast


On that particular weekend in 2005 the beaches were literally covered with these jellies. You can see in the middle photo, there were thousands of them littering the beaches. I had never seen so many on the beach!

Thanks, S Frazier... I just figured they would fall into that category, since they were sea creatures. Appreciate you're input and you re-categorizing for me!

Hello. I'll move this to the "other" category for you because although called such, jelly fish are not really fish. Cheers
