This creature is a kind of shellfish called Sea Butterfly. The origin of the English name is that the legs spread in a wing shape from side to side, and this makes the swimming look like a butterfly flapping. In addition, Megalopa (larval crab) was riding on this sea butterfly.

I am working as a researcher at medical company but I want to concentrate on shooting in 2022.
