Lady in red, she’s dancing with me beneath the waves, on the dance floor of the sea.
Our giant cuttlefish are beautiful, gentle and curious creatures. When diving with them you never know how an encounter will go. Sometimes they retreat under a ledge or into some hideaway. Sometimes they linger just out of reach. Sometimes you will be completely ignored and other times they will play and interact in the most amazing of ways.
I have had them try to pull off my mask, or breath through my regulator. On one occasion I am convinced I was challenged to dual of rock-paper-scissors. The cuttlefish won!
On this dive in the shadow of Rapid Bay Jetty, this lady in red just wanted to dance with me.
