Underwater beauty shot. Squid egg cases look like a snow drift across the ocean bottom. The egg cases of California market squid, also called opalescent squid (Doryteuthis opalescens) move continuously in the ocean current. Good light. Center-frame is a small island of algae-covered rock on the seafloor, in the midst of the wide spanse of white egg cases. One young kelp fish (Heterostichus rostratus) swims away from the rocky spot. Leaves behind a tube dwelling anemone (Ceriantharia) and a small slender goby fish. Pacific Ocean bottom. California. West Coast, North America.
