Squid at Night
Squid at Night, 2009 Komodo, Indonesia
Metallic C-Print, 10 x 15 inches
Squid (cephalopods like the octopus and cuttlefish) feed at night. They spot small fish, shrimp, and crabs with their enormous eyes and then use their tentacles to pull their prey into their powerful, sharp beak. The squid's super-charged nervous system (10 times faster than humans) allows them to camouflage or display nearly instantly by altering their coloration, pattern and texture.
