Thousands of blue blubber jellyfish have washed up at an Australian beach, surprising locals and marine experts, BBC informs.
Charlotte Lawson, 24, took photos of the jellyfish at Queensland's Deception Bay after noticing an unusual colour in the water.
"[When] we got closer we realised it was jellyfish," she told the BBC. "It was like bubble wrap across the beach."
Although a common sight on Australia's east coast, the mildly venomous marine stinger is rarely seen in such numbers.
