Romantic Common Cuttlefish

You know folks, a common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) is all it takes to make my day. This cuttlefish had a bit of a fling with the camera’s strobe—or maybe it was the diffuser. It came right up to touch the bulb. In fact, I had to keep backing up just to get a shot. And it followed. New friend day!
