Snail might look humble for most of us. However, if you ever checked snail photograph featured on our site, you might start to admire their tiny world, which is extremely beautiful and fairy-tale looking. Of course, that is not the truth. They just look so pretty in photograph’s hands with the right snail, right surrounding, right time and right light. Today, we will present you with another amazing sets of snail photos by Polish photograph Katarzyna Załużna who spend hours and hours to take photos of snails. According to Załużna “The hardest part is getting the snail to cooperate. I like to photograph in the evenings as the light gives warm atmosphere. I use manual lens at F1.8 aperture so it is sometimes difficult to focus on the snail and many shots cannot be used. It usually takes me about 1 hour to get the image I want.”
Our favourite marine photograph Alexander Semenov continues his exploration in Arctic Circle with his divers team at Moscow State University’s White Sea Biological Station. From giant jellyfish to the tiniest of unknown sea worms, the photographer captures almost all of the creatures you see here out in the wild, without the convenience of a laboratory or studio.
Drosera, commonly known as the sundews, is one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, including more than 194 species that lure, capture, and digest insects by using glands that cover their leaves. In photographer Joni Niemelä‘s gorgeous images, these individual droplets shine with exquisitely-speckled details, adding a mystical feel to the hungry plant. Below are some photos of Niemelä’s photo series about sundrew and you can find more on your website.
Blue, purple, black, various colors and shapes, fungi’s world is more attractive than flowers for some people but the only problem is they are too humble to be in the spotlight. But thanks to the people like Steve Axford (previously) who use their cameras to bring the magical world of fungi in front of our eyes. Axford lives and works in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia where he often has to travel no further than his own “back yard” to make some of the discoveries you see here. And Axford believe that some of the mushrooms he finds may never have been documented by scientists before!
