The deepest purple beckons us in the shallowest of waters. Paper thin yet not the slightest tear from moving to and fro.
Delicate to the touch of an outsider’s gloved hand. Leave it alone; let it grow. So tomorrow’s viewers too, shall be invited.
This image was totally unexpected while scuba diving. I just stuck my arm out blindly during a night dive and hit the shutter release button to finish off my spool.
Only saw the jellyfish after the dive, a few days later. Very unexpected.
Open lines for feeding time underwater. A feather star stretches out a feathery fan and gathers what it can filter from the ocean current. Microscopic morsels caught in its soft linear webs.
Arms curl inward and transport the prey to an open, waiting mouth. Free-swimming and stalkless they prowl the muddy ocean floors.
