Upper image: in situ scan of a cruising Euphausia superba juvenile in the Southern Ocean - the filtering basket is wide open, ready to capture what is probably a small red copepod 30 degree below the eyes, between the antennae. The swimming legs are beating with full power, the telson adjusts the approach slightly downwards towards the prey. Lower image: typical pack ice breaking up on the frontpage of Biologie der Polarmeere.
