Bigfin reef squid (Sepioteuthis lessoniana), Marsa Nakari, southern Egypt
A deadcalm night, and many squid hunting around the boat. A prefect day to shoot the squid mirror shot. Even if I hae the best conditions you can imagine, and the most cooperative squid in aöö Red Sea, it still took me 2 hours to get this shot.

Sepioteuthis lessoniana, commonly known as the bigfin reef squids or oval squids, is a commercially important species of loliginid squid. They are one of the three currently recognized species belonging to the genus Sepioteuthis. Studies in 1993, however, have indicated that bigfin reef squids may comprise a cryptic species complex. The species is likely to include several very similar and closely related species.
