Second Place, Marine Animal Portraiture

This invading alien ... er, flying tentacle beast ... er, Caribbean reef squid was photographed from below by Jerry Kane of Kailua, Hawaii, off the island of Bonaire.

Reaching about 8 inches (20 centimeters) in length, the squid can shift their body colors in short order for communication and protection from predators.
