    I think the one that was on the right that ran away. They're not aggressive, even the 4meter ones have (as far as I know) never been reported in a human attack.

    People from the UK seem to be terrified of nature; I remember swimming at Manly there was this awful screaming and I thought someone was getting attacked by a shark, I saw the guy that was screaming and swam over to see if he was ok, he was an English lad and a blue bottle (they call them Portuguese man o' war - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia in the UK) had wrapped around his back, chest and shoulders, he was rubbing at it and spreading the tentacles across his body. I told him to stand still and plucked it off and threw it back in the water, he was shocked and very surprised at my calmness. Didn't even buy me a beer after it!
