Translucent Ocean Creatures

Juvenile Cowfish. Photo: Chris Newbert/Minden Pictures

A photographer's strobe gives a violet sheen to this translucent juvenile roundbelly cowfish off the coast of Kona, Hawaii. Also known as the transparent boxfish, the roundbelly cowfish has two short horns in front of its eyes.

This. Is. So. Very. Cool! Just the kind of things you expect from the good folks at NatGeo ... here's a very neat photo gallery of translucent sea creatures by Chris Newbert of Minden Pictures at the National Geographic's website: - Thanks Zella!

I saw some of the others on a Discovery Channel special, I think it was Blue Planet. The comb jellyfish is just spectacular when you watch it move. Coolest thing I've seen on TV in years.
