      northwest diver Russell Gilbert Thanks. There was a larger male and three females. One got a quick love tap from the male :-)

      Very nice. Most of squid shots I have seen come from the Caribbean, not Hawaii.

      they are so beautiful! Such wonderful eyes. How big? It's hard to tell.

      That's the beauty of it, Amy. Truth be told, about 8 inches long.
