Glitter Squid

in photofeed •  5 months ago

If you don't know by now Cephalopods (Octopus, Squid, Cuttlefish & Nautilus) are some of my favourite animals, they have so much personality, extremely smart and seem to be alien like. I'll be travelling to Palau, some of the most remote islands in the world towards the end of the year, hoping to be able to tick off Nautilus off my bucket list. During the day they live in depths of 500m plus but during the night they can up to a normal diving depth in Palau, which makes them incredibly rare anywhere else in the world but commonly seen in Palau - I can't wait!

This image of a Squid was shot during a night dive close to a sandy shore - giving it a glittery effect making it one of my favourite Squid shots.

The things we don't see....this is so beautiful. I can't imagine being in the waters at night....things that sneak by our feet are scary :)

Where does the light come from? Your light? How did you even see it? Amazing.
