'Sea angel' spotted in White Sea in Russia

A naked sea butterfly (Clione limacina) was spotted swimming in the icy White Sea by Russian divers. The dreamy sea creature, with its delicate "wings" and vibrant colors, looks like an animation as it swims through the frigid water.

Also known as a "sea angel," the zooplankton mollusk is found from the surface to a depth greater than 500 meters in the Arctic Ocean and cold regions of the North Atlantic Ocean.
