Hello my cheeky monkeys!
I came across this stunning piece today about the Portguese Man-of-War and wanted to share it with you. The Man-of-War looks like a jellyfish, but it’s actually a creature that is composed of a colony of animals, called zooids. This video is kid-friendly, too!
From the photographer, Aaron Ansarov: “In an age when everyone is constantly bombarded with visuals, it’s easy to take a quick look at an image and move on, he says. In nature, it’s become a bad thing because we see a living creature and we consume it visually and move on,” Ansarov says. We forget the fact that this is a living creature that’s struggling to survive.”
You can check out the incredible pictures here, and watch the video below! There’s so much beauty in this world!
And! If you’re in the Zionsville area of Indiana, come out and see me on September 7th at 1pm! I will be chatting and signing books with the fine people at 4 Kids Books & Toys, and there will also be CROC CUPCAKES in attendance! I’d love to see you there!
