Description: 

This photo was taken to capture the subtle pink iridescence in the skin, visible at the top edge of the mantle cavity opening (just to the right of the squid's upper eye). You can also clearly see yellow and black chromatophores on the head and dorsal mantle. The iridophore layer responsible for the pink iridescence lies beneath the skin and chromatophore layers.
