I need more photos of the flying squid — there are too few floating around the web.

    ” The Molluscan Air Force” the title of your posting actually made me laugh out loud. The picture added makes it even better.

    You have to love nature for these kind of great lessons about what evolution can come up with. But I am surprised – has really nobody before observed and reported the flying squid??

    Oh, they have been reported on occasion, just not (AFAIK) photographed.

    Totally speechless with awe…
    Are they really using their tentacles to form an airfoil/aerodynamic shape??? Assuming they’re coming toward the viewer.
    Pls comment on scale: each looks 10 or so cm long…
