biomorphosis:

Sapphirina copepod, a.k.a. "sea sapphire" is a tiny shrimp like crustacean that makes up the bottom of the food chain. The microscopic layers of crystal plates inside their cells catch light and reflect back different hues, from bright gold to deep blue that resembles like a gem. 

When they’re abundant near the water’s surface the sea shimmers like diamonds falling from the sky. Japanese name this kind of water, “tama-mizu”, jeweled water. Combine this nifty trick with the sea sapphire’s impressively transparent body, and you have an animal as radiant as a star in one moment, and invisible in the next.

I CEPHALOPODI
Cephalopods of Naples

From an 1896 monograph by Giuseppe Jatta.  The illustrator is Comingio Merculiano (1845- 1915), a professional watercolor painter hired in 1885 by prof. Anton Dohrn as in-house illustrator for the Naples Zoological Station, and one of the best scientific illustrators to date. This book on cephalopods is his masterpiece.

qvxz:

Argentinean sculptor Adrián Villar Rojas creates enormous sculptural works that seem like remnants of a science fiction movie set, or bizarre moments from a surreal dream.

The awesome piece you see here is entitled My Family Dead (2009). Here a life-size blue whale, created by the artist, lies beached in the woods outside Ushuaia, Argentina. The stranded cetacean is pockmarked with tree stumps, which leaves the viewer wondering if it’s being slowly claimed by the forest or perhaps it’s a native resident. Beautiful and utterly awesome.
