With Labor Day comes the unofficial end of another summer. Therefore one good long look back at the sultry season on the beach is in order with these awesome animal sand sculptures. You could call them sons of beaches.
The goal is 12,000 species. The ’Photo Ark’ navigator and animal photographer is Joel Sartore. The mission is to document every captive animal species in the world using studio lighting and black-and-white backgrounds. So far, he’s traveled to 40 countries and has accomplished more than half of his target.
