A Man O' War stranded on Ft. Lauderdale Beach in the early morning hours with Venus rising over the ocean. Man O' War are beautiful creatures but their tentacles can cause a painful sting leaving whip like welts on the skin. Their tentacles can sting for hours and sometimes days after they're dead. My intent with this photograph is to show the inner beauty and intricacy of this creature, to show beauty that others may overlook. I used a small maglite to illuminate the Man O' War from behind. As a side note I returned this stranded jellyfish to the ocean as a way of saying thanks.
