Day Twelve

Day Twelve.

This is a slow-motion video capture that shows the legs and swimmerets furiously swimming, and then right before the video ends (at about 40 seconds), one of the shed exos drifts past. It looks like an eyeless, opaque, ghost zoea. I’ve been trying to capture one on film for days and am thrilled to have caught one. On shed days, there are hundreds of these in the water and it requires double cleaning sessions just to keep the water somewhat clear.
