One of the little-known squid facts is that they have three hearts. This is because their bodies are very complex. Their two smaller hearts serve their gills, while the larger one pumps blood to the rest of their bodies

"Golden Portrait II"
I angled my strobes to light just the face. I used a high shutter speed to keep the water blue and provide contrast to the yellow. A shallow depth of field kept focus on just the face and eyes. No filters or Photoshop.
