Beautiful Bigfin Reef Squid (4 of 5)

Bigfin reef squid (Sepioteuthis lessoniana)

Date Taken: September 3, 2014 at 6:48pm
Dive site: Cheeky Beach (one of our FAVORITE places in the WORLD!!), Buton Area (SE Sulewesi), Indonesia

While these are fairly common, they're usually only around at night...making them hard to shoot / focus on (IMO). And, they're so reflective that it can cause the photo to be overexposed / shiny. This shot was a bit over exposed but I was able to dial it back a bit in Lightroom.

My iNaturalist observation: 5069874
