The bluebottle (a.k.a. Portuguese man o’ war) is just a little bubble critter with a long tentacle. But there is a nasty sting in that tentacle and the aftermath can be very unpleasant. When we see a row of these washed up on the beach we assume there are more in the water, which usually makes that a swimless day for us.
Are there bluebottles that you avoid?
