In strong winds, thousands of Portuguese men o'war are blown onto the coast of NSW, Australia. Rafts of them trapped in a sheltered bay offered me a chance to photograph them. On this attempt I was in the water at sunrise, to catch both the eerie light and the clearer water brought in by high tide. A breeze pushed the animals along like tiny sailing boats, making framing tricky and despite a wetsuit, I didn't manage to avoid stings. This image was a finalist in the NHM/BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards 2014.
