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.
