Watch more with these video collections:

Look very, very closely at Protoreaster linckii, Scolymia, Fungia, Trachyphyllia, Symphyllia, Euphyllia divisa wilde, a mix of Zoas and Alien eye zoas, and Tridacna maxima in this 2K and 5K mix of intense time lapse footage shot under ultraviolet light by Italian filmmaker Sandro Bocci: …meanwhile…

…Meanwhile… shows the world of marine animals like corals and starfish at high magnification and during long time span through the time lapse… This is an infinitesimal part of the wonderful world in which we live and of which we should take better care. A trip through a different perspective that would encourage reflection on the consequences of our actions on each scale of space and time. Enjoy the vision…
