Real-time video captured from four marine animals underwater. Left: color image. Right: DoLP image in a false-color map, where red and blue indicate highly polarized and unpolarized light, respectively (see scales at right). a) O. scyllarus, with polarized antenna scales. b) H. trispinosa with polarized blue maxillipeds. c) S. latimanus swimming away from the diver, with polarized stripes. d) S. latimanus in a stationary state with polarized stripes (same specimen as in c). e) S. lessoniana with polarized stripes.
