Squinting Squid

Your Shot photographer Luiz Felipe Puntel captured a close encounter with a curious squid attracted by the dive light. Cephalapods—like squid, octopuses, and cuttlefish—are among the most intelligent invertebrates, often able to solve simple puzzles in addition to their dazzling camouflage skills.
