There's a certain feeling of freedom the ocean brings. The ocean isn't just one thing or the other- it is an amalgamation of everything coexisting simultaneously. It's so apparent yet so unfamiliar to majority of people. You could experience the safety and tranquility of the shallows to the dark mysteries that lie beyond the depths. With every interaction, below the waves is what tells a different story. ๐ŸŒŠโ˜ฎ

Do you ever just simply gaze up whilst swimming as the light refracts around you- the hands of rays touch your skin pulling you back to the surface, then it's all over. ๐ŸŒŠ

The Australian Giant Cuttlefish as you may have guessed is the largest species of cuttlefish in the world. During the winter months they venture to find a potential mating partner. Can you spot the smaller female cuttlefish swiftly avoiding the male in the background. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Who says Sydney doesn't have a good underwater scene. Seriously the marine life is crazy here. You'll never know what wonders lie beneath the waves of your local beach if you don't jump in and explore while you can. ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿข๐ŸŒŠ

Southern Pygmy Squid (Idiosepius notoides) these tiny cephalopods only grow to 2.5 cm for the females and 1.6 cm for males. They predate small crustaceans by ambusing them from behind.
