Photographer Captures Mysterious Sea Angel Hovering Under Ice In The White Sea

Marine biologist and head of the divers’ team at Moscow State University’s White Sea Biological Station, Alexander Semenov, captured a real-life creature known as a Sea Angel hovering in the White Sea.

Semenov is also a professional photographer who captures incredible photos of sea-life underwater.

According to Semenov on his Fickr page, “This practice makes it possible to observe animals that cannot be properly studied under laboratory conditions, such as soft-bodied planktonic organisms or stationary life forms living on the seafloor.”

“My personal goal is to study underwater life through camera lenses and to boost people’s interest in marine biology. I do this by sharing all my findings through social media and in real life, through public lectures, movies, exhibitions, and various media events.”
