Out of the Blue

Well, it's not summer yet, but the forecast calls for mid-90s today, and near 100 tomorrow. Makes me fear for what August will bring.

The only photo I saw showed the cuttlefish mimicing a physical object in the tank next to him. The mimic a picture claim is mentioned in the article, but I say with out a picture it didn't happen.

Click the "Next" links you'll see more pics

One of them moves his arms to align with the stripes on the wall. I guess that is as close to "mimicking a picture" as it comes in the article, I was expecting them to to mimic pictures... like of Mickey Mouse of something.

The rest were trying to blend in with the environment. Most of them just showed they're resourceful but one or two were impressive.
