These Gorgeous Starfish Close-Ups Are Almost Pornographic

Russian macro-photography Flickr king Alexander Semenov loves getting up close and personal with bizarre, exotic sea creatures. His latest muse is the starfish, and it’s not hard to see why. Is it hard to see why? GET CLOSER.

Ah… Staring into those ethereal, glowing, neon patterns is making me feel dizzy, in the best possible way. What I would give to frolic through a field of those bioluminescent starfish ossicles, if only I were microscopic…

What? Don’t hate on my dreams.
