This all started because we were looking for worms.

Phil and I were asked to collect squid egg capsules for Leslie Harris at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. The purpose was to help her answer questions about the red Capitella polychaete worm that associates with squid eggs.

Over the next few months, I photographed tiny, developing squid embryos. We hope you will find them as fascinating as we have.
