Caption: A Daphnia, a micro-crustacean several millimeters in size, struggles to break free of the tentacles of a Hydra, a pond water predator. The Daphnia succeeds but loses part of its body in the process. Both are multi-cellular organisms found in freshwater ponds, lakes and streams throughout much of the world. Recorded under Rheinberg illumination.
