While I tried to capture a shot of these juvenile squids near to the diving platform, a curious guest is watching me and wonders what the heck I am doing there ;-) The lights on top are reflections of my strobe lights on water surface.

Patrol Boat 119 - I took this shot 13 minutes after this new shipwreck touched oceans ground. Lots of dirt & dust clouds....the ship's stern was totally covered by a sand cloud that time. Ambient light shot, converted to B/W.

This baby Bobtail Squid came quite close, investigating the Alien intruders, visiting his world. Did you know that a Bobtail Squid is emitting just enough bio-luminescence towards the sea-floor to make him invisible against the surface?

This is Oceanic Art - the tail of a juvenile Slipper-lobster glows in beautiful colors, just before he propels himself out of sight with a couple of contractions.

A Mediterranean Bobtail Squid in its near-perfect stealth mode. They use their arms and suckers to cover themselves with sand and debris. When their pray gets close, they shoot up and catch it. Did u know that they emit bio-luminescence?

This is probably what a crab sees when it looks down its arms... Did you know that these hairs can pick up water movement as small as the equivalent of the energy of a few photons (much like the body-hair on spiders). :o

An unknown species of plankton. I actually found this by chance, since it could only be seen when lit from the side or from behind - as it is fully see-through and only 2cm long...
