It excites me every time one of your followers asks for your career advice. I can't actively participate in marine biology since my academic background is art/design, but I'm glad that many people like you and your followers are passionate about the field, and care to share your experiences with us! I'm hoping that one day I can easily cross the line between art and science. Meanwhile, I'll just sit here and enjoy your posts. Stay awesome!

Well thank you! 

I don’t see why you can’t actively participate though! The line between art and science is not that thick. I often find science is best communicated by art! Hope you can find a way to dance over the line and enjoy both sides!

The sting from a Portuguese man-of-war hurts like hell, so most people avoid the jellyfish-like creatures. Not Aaron Ansarov — he and his wife don rubber gloves and collect them when they wash up on the beach near their home in Delray Beach, Florida.

They take the creatures back to their house and Ansarov photographs them on a makeshift light table and then mirrors the image in Photoshop. He shot dozens of them this past winter and the result is a unique, psychedelic portfolio.
