big eye, small eye

one of the most memorable encounters i ever had with nature. this was on a night dive off pulau perhentian, malaysia - we entered from the boat just when a huge rain storm started pouring down and we only got about 10 minutes bottom time before the boatman banged his engines which was the signal for us to surface and get the hell out of there. but these 10 minutes were probably some of the best diving i ever got in the past 10 years: not only was the pitch black water lighted up by flashes, we also saw some of the rarest nudibranches while we were down at the sea floor, and while surfacing, this little cuttlefish guy (or girl for that matter) appeared dancing right in front of our eyes… it was only about 4-5 cm long and clearly a bit dazzled by the sudden bright company of our flashlights, but didn't seem to mind posing for this selfie with me :-)
