[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cuttle fish in the Underwater World on Sentosa Island. It is a wonderful aquaruim, beautiful! It has a circular glass tunnel to walk through with lots of small sharks, and other fish that swimover your head. The cuttle fish only has a small window sized home. If you buy your birds cuttle bones, one of these gave up it's life. They seemed pretty freindly, came near the glass to check me out, checking them out!

I once caught one of these, and had the bright idea of letting it latch onto the back of my hand just to see what it felt like with the suckers. Ummm... to anyone else who may want to try this if given the chance, be warned, they have a very very sharp strong beak under there, which cuts through skin no problem at all. I now have a nice little scar to remind me just what it felt like.

These are such beautiful graceful creatures,and very trusting.They will eat from a divers hand,but.yes they do have a nasty bite.
What a shame about the focus.Are you able to do anything more with it? Still,a very nice photo,and worth posting.Thank you.

Very interesting squid, Gloria. You took a very difficult subject but it's nice. The whole body of the fish moves in "waves" the whole time, difficult to focus from short distance.

Good capture Gloria, interesting animal. I know underwater through glass is pretty tricky but the focus is soft over the cuttlefish. Nice colours and compo. Well done.

Points tomorrow, I've spent all my chips.

Siempre he admirado la capacidad para cambiar de color y mostrar sus estados de ánimo de estos animales Gloria.
Buena captura, tal vez el foco no sea perfecto, pero la dificultades de estas imágenes son evidentes.
Buena composicion y presentacion.
