A wandering albatross tends to its’ young chick on sub-Antarctic Marion Island. The tranquil feel of this image belies how ferocious the conditions were at the time. Gale force winds and horizontal rain mixed with ice pellets were the order of the day. I became more and more frustrated with trying protect my lens from the rain and eventually I gave up...deciding to make the droplets on the glass a feature of this photograph. A year later, sitting comfortable in dry and warm conditions I can’t imagine this image without its ‘signature’ raindrops on the lens. That rainbow by the way...sat in the sky for hours!

A Jellyfish carries a heavy load of brittlestar (relatives of sea stars) hitchhikers in the Mozambique Channel. As solo artists I have photographed both jellyfish and brittlestars many times, but I have only seen this unique double act once. It appears that these freeloaders not only hitch a ride, but also actively ‘steal’ planktonic food scraps from right underneath the jellyfish’s tentacles. How do you think these seabed/coral reef dwelling brittlestars actually get into/onto these pelagic drifting jellyfish? Please leave your ideas/theories in the comments. I will post what I think is the most likely scenario in next few hours. Unpublished photograph from my 2014 @natgeo magazine story "A tale of two Atolls "
