    Awsome animals…
    I have enjoyed many times while swimming in this wonderful beaches…
    Also we can see much more intensive colours at different sunshine hours…
    Amazing…
    But, be careful, for sure…
    😉
    If anybody can find Glaucus atlanticus living together… Magical…
    It’s rare because usually it lives with Physalia phisalis but sometimes with Velella velella as well… Beautiful…
    I wish you enjoy!!

    Best fishes.

    Xoan.
