[ #PlanetOrPlastic ] The Cuttlefish and the Condom | Photograph by Pasquale Vassallo (@pasquale_vassallo) . “The animal is beautiful in its colors but my bitterness grows when I notice what it tries to bring to the mouth with its arms,” writes #You#YourShotPhotographer Pasquale Vassallo. “I did not believe it, but what I saw is really a condom. I took a few photos as I thought about how we do not love and respect nature, and that we continue to destroy it.” — “Thank you for sharing this photo and story with us. I agree with #YourShotPhotographer Mar Medina who commented, ‘A great shot with a disgusting and disappointment about the scene. I totally agree with you! This is an unfortunate reality every time more and more often seen in the oceans.’ Photos like this are strong visual reminders that we as a human species must do better to respect and take care of our planet. It is our responsibility.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee) .
