Atlantic Bobtails
Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain
By Pedro Carrillo

Bobtail squids are elusive photo subjects; I've gone for years without seeing a single one despite numerous nights diving in the Canary Islands. I was nearing the end of an extensive search when I finally discovered this tiny couple matting. I did not have the right lens for the job — I never imagined they would be so small (approximately a half inch) — but I still managed to shoot a few keepers of that magic instant.

Nikon D200, 60mm f/2.8 AF-D Micro lens, 1/180 sec @ f/22, ISO 320, Seacam Seaflash 250 TTL strobes (2); Seacam housing; www.pedrocarrillo.net
