Strawberry Squid Looks Marvelously Bedazzled

The images below were taken the ultra-talented underwater photographer Paul Caiger.

Known as the Strawberry Squid, this is one bejeweled beauty! Its body looks as if there are jewels covering it, therefore it is also known as the reverse jewel squid. Sampled from the ocean twilight zone, they explain that this mysterious ocean dweller can be found between "the sunlit surface layer and extending down to about 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) deep." 

"The strawberry squid is a source of food for many of the large apex predators–such as sperm whales and Risso's dolphins–that dive down into the twilight zone to feed. "

Paul Caigar's Strawberry Squid image won the most-liked Instagram photo and crowned top "Instastar" from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's best of 2019.

A Beautiful Photo Series Captures The Relationships Between Dancers And Their Pups

Photographer duo, Kelly Pratt Kreidich and Ian Kreidich, have been specializing for years in photographing professional dancers. 

Then, a few years ago, they hit upon a new idea and started photographing the same dancers but this time, with their loving dogs. 

100 dogs and dancers later, their new photo series "Dancers & Dogs" is a full-length art book, available now for your viewing pleasure.

On their home page, the talented duo wrote: "One day, I (Kelly) had a strange idea: "What if we did pictures of dancers, with dogs." Ian looked at me like I was crazy. On paper, it was strange and didn't make sense. Why dancers and dogs? But I told Ian to just "Go with it." I had a vision. Our first duo was Ericka and Baxter, an English Bulldog, who belongs to a friend. We captured just the results we were hoping for – clean and elegant pictures, that are sweet, light-hearted and funny. Ballet is often seen as stuffy or unapproachable, and we feel like this project helps people see the lighter side of dancers. We have learned a lot during this process. We were not animal photographers when we started out! But along the way we have learned how to work on a dog's level, how to get dogs to do certain actions, what kind of dogs are even right for this project".

Cat-ographer Captures Candid Photos Of Cats Living In Working Places

While cats are usually considered less social, there are many curious kittens who prefer to be right in the middle of what a person is doing—no matter how inconvenient their presence may be. 

Italian Photographer, Marianna Zampieri, started capturing cats at work for her aptly-titled series C-AT WORK.

The talented photographer, who describes herself as Cat-ographer, takes documentary-style images (mostly in black and white) of cats in places of business and provides a fascinating look at how cats claim even the most uninviting workplaces as their own. From a salon to a library to a recording studio, these animals are seen lounging on the equipment or causing adorable distractions to their humans.

Zampieri was first attracted to the idea because it allowed her to see felines in "the most unusual environments… where we are not used to seeing them." My goal," Zampieri told My Modern Met, "is always to try to capture the beauty of a relationship between cats and people and demonstrate the great dignity and the incredible adaptability of these animals in any situation."

Stunning And Unique Looking Birds (39 Pics)

We did not know that a majority of these amazing and colorful birds even existed! Pretty crazy to think about how much beauty there is in all species on Earth. 

These unique birds are so mesmerizing, we'd absolutely love to someday come in contact with all of them! Except for maybe a Harpy Eagle, that looks like a bird/human hybrid from a nightmare-ish fictional story.

British Photographer Travels The World For Two Years Capturing Endangered Animals

London-based photographer Tim Flach traveled the world for almost two years, capturing the nuanced expressions, unique patterning, and unusual profiles of endangered animals, large and small. Flach focused his lens on highlighting the traits of those valuable species that are at risk of disappearing due to habitat loss, climate change, and human activity. 

Flach has published several books of his photography: one is centered around endangered animals, while others are species-specific, celebrating horses, birds, or dogs. You can explore the artist's catalog as well as several galleries of animal portraits on his website, and follow him on Instagram for first glimpses of new work.
