Piranha at the "SEA LIFE" in SCHEVENINGEN, The Netherlands
It's such a shame how many fish have a horrible reputation that is not fully correct.
When we think about piranhas, we think about bloodseeking killer machines. In a certain way they are: they are amazing teamplayers with some gloriously sharp teeth, that won't leave any piece of meat left on a bone.
Even though they're amazing killers: they won't attack you without a reason. They're have been multiple tests with humans in swimming pools filled with piranhas, and the humans left the pool unharmed.
I absolutely love the little glitterscales that you can see, and I admire them so much for their effective instinct. Can't wait to own them myself. 〰️〰️
H A L L O // A M S T E R D A M / and my what a beautiful city you are! It seems that every corner of the picturesque capital is an ode to its rich artistic heritage (Rembrandt, Van Gogh...). I could get lost for days admiring the busy canals, gabled architecture and baskets bursting with bright petunias. For now, I've made myself at home with my little makeshift artist's studio, hoping to steal some time away to put my inspiration to paper ♥ 🇳🇱 #IAmAmsterdam#NatalieRompotis //

The world of underwater plants is dark and muddy, but in UNSTILL LIFE Catherine Nelson presents an underwater world that can even be called human: it is both familiar and unknown. Nelson created a new form of nature, which she carefully arranged and transformed into a super-form of itself. The stems of the plants are turned in such a way so as to show their best side. Time is compressed: all lilies are in bud, while they bloom and die at the same time. With her digital images, Nelson refers to the achievements of humanity, which is decoding nature’s secrets at a rapid pace and trying to improve all that exists.
