Mating pharaoh cuttlefish

Pharaoh cuttlefish (Sepia pharaonis) mating. The male at centre is protecting the egg-laying female (below) from a rival male (above). The dark stripes and raised arms are threat displays. Like all cuttlefish, it can rapidly change the colour and texture of its skin. It uses this for camouflage and communication. During mating, the male places a spermatophore, a sac containing sperm, in a pouch by the female's mouth. The spermatophore then bursts, releasing sperm into the female's mantle cavity, where it fertilises the eggs. The eggs are then laid individually, being fixed to hard surfaces. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand

Aerial photo of San Andreas fault

Aerial photograph of the San Andreas fault as it crosses the Carrizo Plain some 450km (300 miles) south of San Francisco & 160km (100 miles) north of Los Angeles. One of the world's great seismic faults, the San Andreas extends almost the full length of California & is responsible for major earthquakes. It is seen here as the narrow, valley-like scar running from bottom left to top centre of the picture. The desolate landscape consists of pressure ridges formed as a result of hundreds of fault movements. The Carrizo Plain is at right, the elevated Elkhorn Scarp at left. This is the place where the San Andreas fault is at its most spectacular
