Magnificent world of fluorescent corals under high magnification.
Published:
Ultra-macro photography of corals under full-spectrum light. All pictures are focus stacks.

These magnificent creatures look dull and colorless under white light, however, once they are exposed to natural spectrum they begin to shine with an entire rainbow of colors. This happens due to their fluorescent pigments. Fluorescence is required to create the right environment for theyr symbiotic algae.
