Near the coast of Japan found the mystical circles
Japanese photographer Yohji Ookata 50 years of his life to the secrets hidden in the depths of the ocean - ever since the age of 21 became a licensed diver. More recently, during a dive off the south coast of the country, Ookata noticed at the bottom, at a depth of about 25 meters of something extraordinary: wavy geometric patterns more than one and a half meters in diameter. He then returned with colleagues and film crew of television programs devoted to nature, to document a miracle.
In contrast to the "crop circles", this mysterious phenomenon explanation was found. With the help of underwater cameras able to detect the "artist" - they turned out to be a small fish, the length of a few centimeters. Day and night she tirelessly sculpts these huge sculptures ... its fin.
On closer inspection it turned out that the circles serve several important functions. But perhaps the most important - is to attract a partner. Females are interested these mounds and valleys of sand and begin to scrutinize them in the search for the male. And then a couple lays eggs in the middle of "the circle" - in the groove, which later serves as a "silencer" ocean currents and protects the tender seed.
