Marine biologist and head of the divers’ team at Moscow State University’s White Sea Biological Station, Alexander Semenov, captured a real-life creature known as a Sea Angel hovering in the White Sea.
Semenov is also a professional photographer who captures incredible photos of sea-life underwater.
According to Semenov on his Fickr page, “This practice makes it possible to observe animals that cannot be properly studied under laboratory conditions, such as soft-bodied planktonic organisms or stationary life forms living on the seafloor.”
“My personal goal is to study underwater life through camera lenses and to boost people’s interest in marine biology. I do this by sharing all my findings through social media and in real life, through public lectures, movies, exhibitions, and various media events.”
Semenov explains the mysterious creature below:
