Congrats to my buddy Craig McClain for getting a ton of exposure on his kick ass blog DeepSeaNews.com. He’s been the “go-to guy” sputtering off all his cool facts about the strangeness of the giant deep ocean isopod Bathynomus to a bunch of news corps like Fox, MSNBC, and some papers. Check out this cool piece on an MSNBC that’s been running on their homepage all day: http://bit.ly/baJ3ef.
Craig threatened to get a tattoo of one of these isopods, but was waiting for the right photo to inspire him. I think he may be looking for a while. : )
This is my attempt at shooting a Bathynomus a couple years ago for a project I was working on photographing deep ocean critters. Craig helped me with the project. Go to his blog for more weirdness.
