Title: The Squid Tango a Mating Dance
Runtime: 4 min
Director: Blane Henderson
Placement: Award of Merit
Competition: June, 2022
Synopsis: Two Caribbean bi-fin squid locked in a fascinating mating dance, repeating the same in-sync motions over and over until insemination occurs. After fertilization the female deposits about 400 egg pods into the safety of her den only to repeat the dance over again, and again with the same male. These normally shy creatures, seemed oblivious to my observation and filming. An amazing and rare glimpse into nature!
