Cuttlefish Confrontation

Created by admin under Calypso News on Wednesday 2nd of January 2013 Cuttlefish Confrontation - Photo 1

Some great Cuttlefish action on Flora Reef, on the ribbons. During a drift dive towards the lagoon I came across a solitary cuttlefish. After taking a few shots, he (or she) swam over to another rubble patch, dominated by another individual. The ensuing battle, or threat display took all or 3 seconds. Renee Brown was luckly enough to witness this confrontation as well, and got a shot of me shooting these wonderful animals.

Thanks for the shot Renee! Shame about those strange strobe angles! Must have been those strong currents, eeh?
