Alien Star­ship

Dur­ing a night dive at a reef at the Murex dive re­sort in Manado, Su­lawesi, I en­coun­tered this bigfin reef squid (Se­pi­o­teuthis lesso­ni­ana). It fol­lowed me for quite a while, and I was al­most tempted to think that it liked me! Un­for­tu­nately not… it was us­ing the light of my div­ing torch to hunt. In this im­age, it’s feed­ing on a small fish.
