Have you met Limacina Helicina? (Also known as the Sea Butterfly, can you tell?) I could stare at this image all day long; there is something incredibly soothing and inspiring about these creatures. Found in the arctic and panarctic, Limacina Helicina travel in swarms. Oh, to be caught in a swarm of these, eh?
This photo is just one of many now in the Gallery by Alexander Semenov, the Chief Diver of the White Sea Biological Station. He graduated from Lomonosov’s Moscow State University with a degree in Zoology with a specialty in Invertebrate Animals and an emphasis on Squid Brains. He has been photographing undersea life for 4 years, constantly honing his techniques and equipment and amazing the world with his images.
And what amazing images they are, wouldn’t you agree?
What do you think when you see these creatures?
And remember, pets, you can always find me here:
