Squid Pate © Benjamin G. McCormick Photography

This is Squid "PATE", as opposed to Squid "PATÉ", by the way. (Just the thought of the latter puts an unpleasant taste in my mouth..!) Anyhow, it's the top of a squid's head.

I find it fascinating that, in addition to being iridescent, squid are also translucent, and sometimes appear to have entire microcosms within themselves.
