Smile! You're on candid camera

Squid's in -- and now it's on film:
The size of a bus, with vast eyes and a querulous beak, Architeuthis has long nourished myth and literature, most memorably in Jules Vernes' '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,' in which a squid tried to engulf the submarine Nautilus with its suckered tentacles.
Neat! The thing that strikes me though is that the article does not include an image from the recent coup. Just an old stock photo of a dead squid.

Further, why did we have to wait a year to learn about this?

Update: this article includes some of the photos.
