Sea Angel in a Winter Ocean: A tiny pteropod - about the size of a Tic-Tac candy - swims beneath pack ice in the winter seas of Japan’s Hokkaido Island. Called Sea Angels locally, these creatures are found in icy waters and ‘fly’ through the sea on tiny wings. 
Though difficult, photographing such gorgeous creatures is a truly incredible experience.
