In my eyes, siphonophorae are the most beautiful life form on the planet.
Here is a video destined to convince your eyes too (while pleasing your ears).
A dream-like journey. The story of someone out of place in his own way, lost in a stranger land he is passionate of in his own way.
I love the poesy of it. The unusual imagery it convoke. The certainly huge amount of work for visual documentation behind it.

It began with the sudden appearance of strange geological formations.
The authorities quickly sent a team of scientists to investigate …
… which soon discovered that the formation was organic in nature and spreading at an alarming speed !
The situation spiralled out of control, creating panic among the population !
Armed forces were used to try to resist the ongoing invasion .. but in vain !
Not a single hole in the ground could be considered safe.
Fortunately, with a bit of dialogue, the underwater creatures managed to reach an agreement and earn enough trust to be able to live peacefully together with the little people invaders.
Jason Isley is a photographer specialized in wild life and especially the oceanic fauna. Inexplicably, he grew tired of classic shots and came up with a nice twist by creating little dioramas using train miniatures (the like of Slinkashu) and the complicity of the sea creatures. I love it !
“Wooly Sagas“, is a wonderful tribute to the subtly strange beauty of the Icelandic landscapes, handmade by Eszter Burghardt, who’s clearly in love with this country.

Recent discoveries show that there are whales alive today that were born before the writing of Moby Dick, 200 years from now and which have old stone harpoons still lodged in their skin.
But they are nothing next to the organism known as “Pando”.
Pando is over 80 000 years old.
Pando is the heavier living being on earth.
TREMBLE BEFORE PANDO !

The sporulation of the great barakan parmenide (Parmenid Barakensis Major) on the Magellanic ocean. The glorious climax of a thousand-years-old biological process.
