Crab Face, Matanzas Inlet Shore, FL

On the southern tip of Anastasia Island, the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve protects the shores of Matanzas Inlet. We’ll hope they’re more effective in this mission than Fort Matanzas was, in its centuries-long mission to protect St. Augustine from various marauders.

As we wandered along the shore we saw many stranded jellyfish, with similar ones bobbing around in the water. Thus far I have failed to identify this critter.
