An eyeball and earhole pleasing underwater macro short filmed at the Lambeh Straits in Indonesia, of which photographer Kay Burn Lim sez:

Most of the creatures shown ranged from the size of a grain of rice to perhaps 2 inches at most. (With the exception of the moray eel and puffer fish). The red “Orang Utan” crab displaying monkey like behaviour was actually residing in a Coca Cola bottle cap. The yellow hairy shrimp after that was barely 4mm tall!


Russian biologist Alexander Semenov’s macro photography of the multicoloured surfaces of starfish epidermis. His close-up series of coral and jellyfish are equally impressive.
