These dudes are so venomous, but fortunately, they are bright blue so you see them.

This one was really well preserved and the light was making pretty on its bubble.

The image started with a bang and then hung out in the 5.9 range for ever. At the last moment, it got zonked over the head and slipped to 5.8 - ah well. It was a toss-in, so I am happy it's above my average.

Interesting subject. The color isolation works well. I would prefer if the background is shown in sharper details, along with the subject. 5 from me.

Yikes! I heard these guys have super painful stings. I take it you stayed well clear ;-)
Quite a striking picture considering its dead on the beach. 7

Very interesting, I've never seen one of these before. I really like the colours and how it shimmers. The tentacles look nice against the sand. It's hard to tell how big it is though (not a critique just an observation).
