" Blue Buttons - The taxonomic class Hydrozoa contain tiny Blue Buttons creatures. While related to jellyfish, they function a bit differently. Each creature is a colony of individual polyps. They live together on the surface of the ocean and drift across the sea. A single mouth intakes all food for the colony. While I had planned on all the etchings being one color, I decided that I wanted to do this one in two colors ".
