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

Shots taken of a subject between 3 inches and 1 foot (7.5 to 30cm) in size (e.g. large fish or diver head) that dominates the frame - any background is incidental and occupies LESS THAN 50% of frame. (cutting it close on the 50% part, but its macro)
