Look at me! The eye of a John Dori, looking at his reflection in the lens. The JD actually stopped and stayed motionless, staring at his reflection for about a minute...

With a size of just over 4mm, this Skeleton Shrimp is nearly invisible to the naked eye. As you can see in this picture, it is not hard to see where Hollywood get their inspirations for Alien movies...
