Euphausia copepod in a drop of water.

Tiny species like this Euphausid photographed in a drop of water are prey to larger organisms in the oceanic food chain. About the size of a fingernail, the shrimp-like creature was collected in Barrow Canyon in the Arctic Ocean. (Photo by Chris Linder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
