Pembrokeshire Ballet Company

Andy’s been filming in Pembrokeshire lately. Beautiful bays dot the wild west coast of Wales, providing shelter from Atlantic surge and storms.

At the end of one dive, a Compass jellyfish joined him. The Chrysaora hysoscella dances into UK coastal waters around May and grows throughout the summer to reach 30cm across its bell, adorned with 16 radii compass-like markings.

Those long tentacles have a nasty sting, leaving angry red welts on skin. Andy joined this beautiful creature for a mesmerising pelagic ballet, and managed to dodge her stinging, swinging wake to capture this stunning video.
