Secrete World Beneath the World

The world under water is always full of wonder, beautiful scenery, mysterious creatures. Today, we will present some unusual photos taken by Dr Richard Kirby in his book “Ocean Drifters, a secret world beneath the waves”, which features the microscopic marvels that inhabit the sea around the British isles. Different from the colorful underwater photography, those transparent creatures are the main character of our today’s post.
