It’s been a fantastic year for jellyfish; they’ve been reported regularly in high numbers across the UK.
After Andy’s dance with a Compass jellyfish a few weeks ago, he jumped at the chance to go jellyfish hunting in Dorset with friends Steve Trewhella and Julie Hatcher.
They searched the glassy sea, before chancing upon dozens of impressive Giant Barrel jellyfish, six feet long, a few with shoals of horse mackerel hitching a ride in their skirts.
Here are a few snippets of Andy being spun around the Lyme Bay dance floor by giant beauties.
