24. Feather Duster worm (Sabelidae)

Subject: Believe it or not but these mesmerizing looking plumes are the radioles of a Feather Duster worm. They are used to breathe and to catch small food particles that are floating by. They can be retracted into the worm’s tube at the slightest sense of danger.

Technique: Close-ups always reveal a lot of elements that otherwise stay left unnoticed. Detailed shots like the one of these radioles often deliver beautiful images.
