Wow! This is indeed a rather unique portrait of an animal that is stereotypically seen as repulsive. You've brought an undeniable sense of elegance to the critter, with the light and the choice of BW enhancing the feeling that this is a frame from an noir film.

It's like an abstract, I didn't recognized any insect, any form, but something thak looks like an art-work, a personal composition.
Perfect management of light, perfect presentation.

This is creepy and dark, just what i like :) The light first made me think the tone is like a Holga or Lomo, it really does have such an atmosphere, unique in a way. The b&W is great for this.

An eye catching photo with its astonishing play of lines and forms, enhanced by the light crown on top of the photo.

Le B&W met en valeur la lumière et le graphisme de cette méduse qui a des airs de cerf-volant.
