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.

Fossil radiolarians. Radiolarians are single celled protist ameobas that have a mineral exoskeleton.
This is a little drawing (taken from LA.MA.VE’s latest report) dedicated to Fermin, the Whale Shark in Oslob who unfortunately received a propeller cut to his face and eye earlier this year; an accident that we believe was induced by the feeding practices being carried out in Oslob.
It is also dedicated to the wonderful Elson Aca, a great friend and conservationist in the Philippines, who has played a fundamental part in the development of Whale Shark conservation in the Philippines. A wonderful star.
