Sea Star Time Lapse

This is a great piece of time lapse photography, showing a sea star (or star fish as we call them in the UK) slowly crawling across Mora Beach, Olympic Peninsula, Washington.

It is only when you watch one of these remarkable creatures in slow motion that you realize just how alien they are – to us at least. It really does look like something out of a science fiction film!

This is one day of shots, not edited. The first scene is tiny barnacles on a rock with little black snails so you do have to wait a little while until it gets to the sea stars.

We Are All Connected

This is the latest campaign by the World Wildlife Fund and it is an excellent piece of animation which shows that however intricately, everything on planet Earth is connected. 

It is a lot gentler than some of their recent short ads but it nevertheless gets its point across just as well – which goes to show that you don’t always have to shock in order to make people think.
