The bay near the Australian island took an unusual blue color

In social networks, colorful pictures of Preservation Bay Bay appeared on the north-east of the Australian island of Tasmania, which took an unusual color of color by an electrician due to the invasion of bioluminescent algae.

The water in the bay became partly bright blue last weekend, which immediately attracted the attention of both professional photographers and amateurs. Some of them compared the survey of the observed phenomenon to the northern (or, as it will be more accurately called in the case of Australia, southern) radiance, which is somewhat more difficult to photograph, reports Mashable.

These algae are bioluminescent unicellular organisms-dinoflagellates, also called “marine sparks.” Bioluminescence in living organisms usually arises as a protective mechanism against predators, but it can also illuminate the hunters the way to their prey.

In fresh water, bioluminescent organisms do not live, so such wonderful images can only be made offshore.
