Basket Star - Astrocladus cf. euryale
Basket stars are a group of ophiuroids (Ophiuroidea - Euryalida - Gorgonocephalidae) in which the five arms are very branched. Most of them remain hidden during the day but come out at night, extending their arms into the water to trap food particles.
The Basket Star Astrocladus euryale (in the photos) is a species native to South Africa, whose arms are branched successively and are covered with pale spots. Sometimes this Basket star is commonly referred to as Gorgon’s Head.
Darwin’s Slipper Flower(Calceolaria uniflora) was Discovered by Charles Darwin along his voyage around South America, these unique flowers almost look like a group of small dolls.
Alex McLean, a licensed pilot and photographer, took these gorgeous photos “just by sticking his camera out the window”.
