BY THE WIND SAILOR JELLYFISH & RED PELAGIC CRABS

BY THE WIND SAILORS (Velella velella)  WERE ALL OVER THE BEACH THIS WEEK IN SAN DIEGO.  When I went whale watching a few days ago, the Mola Mola Sunfish were eating lots of them.  There were also millions of Red Pelagic Crabs swimming in the sea.  They look like tiny lobsters!  Both of these marine creatures are showing up here now because of warming in the ocean so we don’t get to see them all the time.  On the whale watching trip I also saw 2 fin whales come up right next to the boat.  Lovely.
