Many of you will remember what this is. After a big swell in late September, squid egg capsules started washing ashore on the outer coast.
I posted a picture similar to this last winter and shared some information about the capsules — see "Dislodged from the deep" on 15 January 2014.
Then I posted pictures of newly hatched squid paralarvae and their beautiful chromatophores — see "Something about cephalopods" on 16 January 2014.
Now you get to see something even better — a video of these wonderful chromatophores in action! Although the still photos are attractive, it's much more informative to see how fast the chromatophores can change.
Enjoy and be dazzled!
