You’ll need to set this to fullscreen for the full effect:
1. Photographer Daniel Stoupin took 150,000 shots of microscopic underwater reef “landscapes” to make the full clip.
2. Each frame needed about 10 minutes to process on Stoupin’s computer.
3. And consists of 3-12 individual shots, with different parts of the image in focus.
5. Like when this Fungia coral excavates itself from sand.
6. And this feather duster worm opens up to catch particles suspended in the water.
7. This Favia coral colony pulsates.
8. And… is that a mouth?
Actually this is Acanthastrea lordhowensis coral under really high magnification. The area covered in this sequence is smaller than fingernail size.
