Stop Everything And Watch This Breathtaking Footage Of Marine Life
"The close-up patterns and colors of this type of fauna hardly resemble anything from the terrestrial environments," says photographer Daniel Stoupin.
Photographer Daniel Stoupin took 150,000 shots of microscopic underwater reef “landscapes" to make the full clip.
Each frame needed about 10 minutes to process on Stoupin's computer.
And consists of 3-12 individual shots, with different parts of the image in focus.
Which really shows in the detail of the footage.
Like when this Fungia coral excavates itself from sand.
And this feather duster worm opens up to catch particles suspended in the water.
This Favia coral colony pulsates.
And... is that a mouth?
But you really need to watch the video in HD to see everything properly.
