Squids Galore

David Dyer and I spent two and a half hours watching at least 100 squids at Bob's Rock on Sunday. It was all a bit overwhelming, so I tried to isolate a pair to observe. The larger male was intent on keeping his smaller female all to himself, oftentimes slipping between her and any potential mate that came close. The final photo below shows the two checking on a clutch of eggs laid inside the staghorn coral. This was definitely a day to remember.
