Day Two Hundred-Fifteen (Aka: The Jellyfish Lord)

So at Quadra, we normally have a fair amount of jellyfish lurking in the water. They're usually the small, clear harmless ones, though.

Every so often, however...we get terrifying/awesome sights like this, though. I nicknamed him the Jellyfish Lord, simply because I've never seen any jellyfish that big here. Ever. Apparently it's close to death, though, as it's very pale in colour.

[Note: It's semi-possible to see the small/regular-sized jellies we get here at Quadra. Just look at the lower half of the picture, and you'll see their outlines. Now compare, then realize why these things were so freaky.]

Not the same jelly (below), but still pretty freaky. As this one is smaller/more vibrant in colour, it suggests that it's younger than the other one.

...then one of the Sail Instructor cadets went and impaled the second jelly on a boathook pole. Lovely. It was horrible, watching it move away with a decent sized puncture wound. :S

Anyway, here's hoping there's no large red jellies when it comes time for my div's jetty jump in 5 days.
