Caption: Copepod with eggs. Free-swimming copepod carrying a cluster of eggs (red, left) under its tail. Copepods are microscopic aquatic crustaceans found in waters around the world. They may either be free living or parasitic on other organisms. They are the main constituent of zooplankton and are therefore a very important food source for other marine animals. They feed on other microscopic animals and plants. Photographed off the coast of Reunion Island, Indian Ocean.
