Microscopic Sea Creatures By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 16:31 GMT, 30 September 2010 Bobbing away in the dark depths of the ocean, these tiny creatures display a unique beauty that few get to truly appreciate. And the latest publication by a scientist who studies these microscopic animals is set to become an unlikely bestseller - all thanks to the beauty of plankton. His coffee table book about the amazing life forms that live unseen in the oceans has dozens of remarkable photographs taken through a microscope. Amazing life forms: Dr Richard Kirby's passion for plankton has led to a set of marvellous pictures which feature in his book Ocean Drifters, a secret world beneath the waves like these tiny Jellyfish Hidden beauty: Stunning images of a Horseshoe worm (left) and a Moon Jellyfish The book also points out that without the miniature creatures we would have no fish, oil, gas or clouds, and the sea would lose its distinctive smell.

Given the clarity of the clouds in the reflection, this was likely taken quite close to the surface. A reverse image search on Tineye and Google did not identify a valid source for this photograph, if you know more please let us know (update: Many thanks to Hoss Cartwright for the help)! Since there’s not much additional information here are some facts about seahorses: - Seahorse is the title given to forty-seven species of marine fish in the genus Hippocampus - They are mainly found in shallow tropical and temperate waters throughout the world, and prefer to live in sheltered areas such as seagrass beds, estuaries, coral reefs, or mangroves - Seahorses range in size from 0.6 to 14 inches (1.5 – 35.56 cm).

The 12 Best Single Malt Scotch Whiskies | GearMoose Scotch whisky (not to be confused with its Irish counterpart, whiskey) is less a beverage than a lifelong love affair, and while many a drinker has dallied with bourbon or rye, true whisky aficionados always return home to their first love. Single malt scotch whisky, in particular — made in a pot still by batch distillation, at a single distillery, with water and malted barley — is renowned not only for its singular, malty flavor, but for dark berry nuance, smoky appeal, and a range of other appealing essences, depending on how it’s aged and processed. Whether you’re an ardent fan of single malt scotch whisky or you’re just starting to fall for this golden nectar of the gods, here are 12 of the best brands and vintages to whet your palate. The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 Year Old The eye-catching amber color and appealing aromas inherent to this 17-year-old scotch whisky can be credited to Malt Master David C. Stewart, MBE, and his affinity for cask finishing. Glenfiddich 18 Year Old

Puffer Fish Creates Ocean Floor ‘Crop Circles’ Right around this time last year, news broke about the discovery of an amazing little puffer fish capable of creating elaborately designed ‘crop circles’ at the bottom of the ocean as part of an elaborate mating ritual. The behavior was first documented by a photographer named Yoji Ookata who later returned with a film crew from the Japanese nature show NHK which later aired an episode about the fish. Even as articles bounced around the web it was still difficult to imagine how a tiny fish could create such a large design in the sand, even when staring directly at photographic evidence.

Portuguese Man o' War "Gosh" you might say, "that's one weird looking jellyfish". Well, you'd be partly right. Certainly it looks rather odd but it isn't a jellyfish, it isn't even one animal. The Portuguese Man o' War is in fact a whole colony of four different kinds of organism, each adapted to perform a specific function for the benefit of the whole. They are all either a kind of polyp, which are like really small sea anemones, or medusae, similar to tiny jellyfish, but here they are all connected to each other and are unable to survive on their own. It gets its name from the shape of its sail which resembles that of 16th century warships like man of wars and caravels. The body beneath the pneumatophore is dominated by the feeding polyps which each have a single tentacle dangling beneath them. They start to reel their load up toward our third organism, the gastrozooids. Did I say groups? I don't want to get all 'existential crisis' on you but seriously, what do you see when you look in the mirror? Ha!
U.S. Marine Protected Area Photos Photograph by Paul Chesley The United States' nearly 1,800 marine protected areas contain some of the country's most spectacular reefs, underwater archaeological sites, and most valuable commercial fisheries and tourist diving sites. Ranging in size from less than one square mile (2.6 square kilometers) to over 139,797 square miles (362,073 square kilometers), the sites are located from the Arctic to the South Pacific, from Maine to the Caribbean, and as far west as the Philippine Sea. The Marianas Trench Marine National Monument, established in 2009, and covering 95,216 square miles (246,608 square kilometers) of submerged lands, is one of the largest marine protected areas in the world. Explorers and scientists are discovering strange and fantastic new species and habitats as they bridge this final frontier on Earth into the deep-sea.
