My cousin Lisa’s husband Troy Tuckey, who is a Research Scientist at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, sent me these photos of beautiful squid he collected during a recent trawl survey in the Chesapeake Bay.

The color patterns are amazing and the melanophores can change size from dilute colors to focused, bright spots.
