“Jelly Fireworks” by Geo Cloete | The Most Astonishing Photos That Won Awards In 2014
“Geo never forgot the vast swarm of box jellyfish he encountered when diving in Hout Bay off Cape Town, South Africa. He fantasised about creating a picture of a huge mass of them, moving ‘like a firework display in slow motion’, their tentacles like star trails. Though Geo occasionally found small groups of box jellyfish around South Africa’s Cape Peninsula, it was seven years before he came across another mass gathering.” –Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 Geo Cloete

Finalist, Underwater Species – "Jelly Fireworks" by Geo "Geo never forgot the vast swarm of box jellyfish he encountered when diving in Hout Bay off Cape Town, South Africa. He had no camera then, but the experience sparked a passion for jellyfish. Though Geo occasionally found small groups of box jellyfish around South Africa’s Cape Peninsula, it was seven years before he came across another mass gathering." –Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014

GLASSWING BUTTERFLY... The 'Greta Oto' might sound like the name of a silent movie star from Eastern Europe, but is in fact the scientific name for one of the most exquisite – and little known – species of butterfly on the planet. This butterfly’s claim to fame is that its wings, spanning up to six centimeters, are almost completely transparent. That’s right, you can see right through them.

10 Underwater Animals with Amazing Abilities - Sea cucumbers have a famous defense mechanism, they discharge their guts at predators, and regrow them later. Another little known defense mechanism they have is their ability to liquefy themselves. Essentially, they unhook the bonds that keep their cells together and let themselves flow into (or out of) awkward spaces.

Aurelia aurita (also called the moon jelly, moon jellyfish, common jellyfish, or saucer jelly) is a widely studied species of the genus Aurelia. All species in the genus are closely related, and it is difficult to identify Aurelia medusae without genetic sampling; most of what follows applies equally to all species of the genus. The jellyfish is translucent, usually about 25–40 cm (10–16 in) in diameter, and can be recognized by its four horseshoe-shaped gonads, easily seen through the top of the bell. It feeds by collecting medusae, plankton, and mollusks with its tentacles, and bringing them into its body for digestion. It is capable of only limited motion, and drifts with the current, even when swimming. Photograph by Alexander Semenov

Photo by Mehmet Karaca/National Geographic Photo Contest Two praying mantises appear to be boxing on a narrow twig in Kahramanmaras, Turkey, located at the foot of Ahir Mountain. The mantis insect family has more than 2,400 species. It is commonly called a praying mantis because of the insects’ prayer-like posture with folded fore-limbs.

Moon jellyfish Aurelia aurita
Alexander Semenov Weird Space, 2012 ”Red Sea in February is full of strange translucent creatures. It’s the jellyfish, ctenophores and salps. They have appeared on our planet long before us, but now for us they look like alien race, but not the typical representatives of the animal world. Ocean and the creatures who inhabit - it’s another universe, the cosmos, and you can see it by yourself.”

"The giant squid was so beautiful that it seemed to sparkle," - Article: "Giant squid filmed alive in deep sea for first time". (Will air Jan 27 on Discovery Chanel)
SCIENTISTS and broadcasters have captured footage of an elusive giant squid roaming the depths of the Pacific Ocean, showing it in its natural habitat for the first time ever. Japan's National Science Museum succeeded in filming the deep-sea creature at a depth of more than half a kilometre after teaming up with Japanese public broadcaster NHK and the US Discovery Channel.
This image of the long sought-after giant squid is part of a Discovery Channel documentary on the largest deep sea creatures. Watch the video!
