Image taken at Rye pier at night, only the second time I have observed this species swimming & both times have been at night, the blue rings are an indication that it wasent as happy to see me as I was of it.

    These are amazing Matt….fantastic captures..

  • Hey Rob, thanks mate, think the seal that was following me around might have disturbed this guy.

    Awesome capture mate, I’d have dirtied my wetsuit seeing that coming at me! :)

  • ha ha…. thanks Simone, think this occy might have dirtied its pants as it was closely followed by a juvenile seal on the prowl for food

    Stunner Matt. Those rings are so bright and iridescent. I bet he’s not as large as he looks.

  • Hi Leanne, no it was quite small actually, this shot was taken with a 105mm macro lens, cheers
