Squid are very active at night. I enjoy watching squid wriggle their tentacles into slithering spirals while hovering, and thrust them straight out like a bouquet of tails to swim. Squid can darken and lighten their pigmentation at will, an ability which becomes obvious when they are illuminated by a night diver's light. This squid was encountered at 5 meters depth and displayed its deadly fangs and claws trying to scare me. It is very difficult to focus in these conditions. I tried many shots, but this was the only successful one.
