... have you heard of sea angels?
|Sea angels (Clione limacina)|
Sea angels (Clione limacina) – one of the images in Richard Kirby‘s new book Ocean Drifters: A Secret World Beneath the Waves featuring high-magnification photographs of plankton, the microscopic marvels that inhabit the sea around the British isles. They underpin the whole marine food chain, provide the world with oxygen, and play an essential role in the global carbon cycle.
If you pop over to the wonderfully named blog 'Mapping the Marvellous' you can read much more like this and explore the wonderful world of links to be found here to cartographers, journals, institutions, museums, marine and wildlife, natural history and life science, wunderkammer and more. Great visuals and brilliant links.
One link I visited just now was Atlas Obscura which took me here and here (a post from Apartment Therapy).
