Cuttlefish

Another night dive – this one was significant because it followed my story of losing my dive bag and getting it back again. We found this guy. Much like an octopus they change color to camouflage themselves. We stayed on top of him and as long as you could see him you knew where he was. Yes, they shoot ink too. This was also the dive when my flash refused to fire. Quick thinking got me some images. I used the dive flashlight and set the color balance to match the LED light. Well the rest is history. We kept at it until the cuttlefish scurried under a coral to be lost from view.
