What a beautiful portrait of this most unusual sea creature. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing and technically well done, your shot also appears to have captured the life of this little animal, the life in it’s eyes. Bravo!

What an amazing little critter. Just amazed to see all the animals that we don’t normally get to see. Goes to show we need to protect them as we do with our own life.

Absolutely love this photo! Looks like a Chihuly piece…..the guy that does the fabulous, imaginative, comtemporary glass blowing. This would be either art imitating nature or nature imitating art!
