Cuttlefish Embrace

Giant cuttlefish

Sepia apama

The Australian giant cuttlefish aggregation is truly one of nature’s great events. Thousands of cuttlefish congregate in the shallow waters around the Spencer Gulf in South Australia to mate and perpetuate the species. The cuttlefish, like alien beings, display an array of patterns and textures.
