Alex Mustard – Next Generation

Andrew Raynor   The developing eggs of a saddleback anemonefish (Amphiprion polymnus) undulate in the current. This species of anemonefish favours anemones growing in sandy areas, so usually has to find a stone and drag it to the anemone to lay its eggs on. These eggs are quite close to hatching with their eyes already […]

Iñaki Relanzón – Wild sea

Zoltán Gergely Nagy – Dipper

Andrew Raynor   As the snows have started to stick this season, my thoughts have gone back to this dipper that I have photographed in April, when a freak snowstorm has covered Transylvania – the last snow of the past winter. Andy Raynor Dover NH

Angel Fitor – Deathly trap

Andrew Raynor   A mauve stinger unfolds its poisonous tentacles to ensnare the surrounding zooplankton, which in its turn is fed by microscopic algae powered by the sun and the nutrients dissolved in the seawater. The complex relationships among all living creatures on the Planet are the key to their prevalence. It is only our […]
