Sand comes alive and creatures are born in frozen moments of weightlessness...

For her latest photographic series titled Sand Creatures, Rotterdam-based photographer Claire Droppert hurled clumps of sand through the air and captured the peculiar shapes with a high speed camera. Looking at the final images it was hard not to see the abstract forms of animals and other creatures that emerged from the weightless plumes of sand. Droppert has been sharing the series on Instagram, and you can see more photography on her website. (via Colossal Submissions)
