A stunning close-up of a North Pacific giant octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) in the Japan Sea. How did talented Russian photographer Alexander Semenov get so close? He says “It’s not easy to get close, but this one was a very patient and calm one. And he was curious about me, so we contacted a little and I made this shot.”

A Red Bull (Amphipoda Acanthonotozoma inflatum) in the White Sea.
Says photog Alexander Semenov, “This amphipod crustacean is kinda unique, because of its very bright color, but it lives in the bushes of red algaes usually, so it’s hidden from enemies and carnivores. Acanthonotozoma feeds on bryozoans, destroying their small houses and eating soft parts.”
