19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Portuguese man o' war
As we were diving around the Azores Islands in Portugal, these interesting looking creatures were everywhere. As they can become very harmful to humans we had to stay inside the boat at one point because there were simply too many of them. I used my tele lens to capture a photo of one of them when the sea was very calm, much like a mirror.
