Our oceans are teeming with billions upon billions of incredible tiny creatures that are invisible to the naked eye. Photographer Jeannot Kuenzel decided to spend his time capturing sea creatures smaller than 10 millimeters, as opposed to more commonly photographed ocean-dwellers like whales, sharks and fish. As an experienced diver, Kuenzel took to the sea with a powerful camera lens to capture what lies beyond human sight. 

Kuenzel currently lives in Malta, in the Mediterranean, where there does not appear to be much going on under the water. But Kuenzel decided to explore what might be flourishing on a "macro" level, and captured a series of photos that he titled: "Extreme Macro."

Take a look:
