A Portuguese man o war cnidaria (Physalia physalis) at sunrise, Bushrangers Bay NSW Australia. Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year 2014 winning image.
“This photograph stops you in your tracks – the shock of electric blue against the black background is arresting and on contemplation the viewer can become lost in the cosmos like complexity of the bluebottles tentacles. The image is hard to fault. It is superb on all fronts: artistic, technical and choice of subject. The central composition and use of over-under photography allow us to take in the full visual impact of the bluebottle and it’s environment.” – Australian Geographic
