Profile of the head of the pontellid copepod Pontella securifer. Light passes sequentially through 3 separate lenses and then hits the photoreceptor cells. This male copepod has one antenna that is bright orange and modified for grabbin g females, while the other antenna is transparent. Two additional eyes are visible on the dorsal(top) surface of the copepod, each with a small red lens.

Deep-sea shrimp. UL shows full color image. The other three panels show how the shrimp appears under blue, green, and red light. Unlike what was seen at shallower depths, this animal is not most camouflaged at natural blue wavelengths. Instead it actually blends with the background best at red waveleng ths, suggesting that camouflage is less important at deeper, dimmer depths.

Yellow zooanthids on a glass sponge. Note that, though highly conspicuous under full light, they blend in with the sponge at blue wavelengths. These animals hav e been quite interesting because they also have bright green fluorescence and very strong green bioluminescence. They also stung our hands when we touched them, suggesting that some of these signals may be warnings of toxicity.
