Echizen Jellyfish in Wakasa Bay

Yow! (Yes, that's a diver in the background. The picture they put on the front page of today's Daily Yomiuri is actually a better picture.)

(If that picture has gone away, likely since Yomiuri's website is bad about archiving things, it's a picture of a diver in a cloud of meter-wide, brown Echizen jellyfish. It literally looks like the jellyfish scene from "Finding Nemo"; you can't see through the cloud. Apparently they were brought to the coast on the Japan Sea side by the recent typhoon.)
