This month’s photo was taken by wildlife biologist, Zachary Cava. He used a brilliant technique to achieve this image:
“To accentuate the otherworldly beauty of this animal, I wanted to photograph it from below, against a black background. To achieve this, I placed the siren in a shallow glass dish filled with water, which I balanced between two folding chairs. I then lay on the ground directly beneath the dish to get the shot. I photographed the siren in a dark room and used off-camera flash to get the effect I wanted.”
