I would often look for rare critters at night time, exploring deep waters in the hopes of chancing upon wonderful sights This diamond Squid is all over the tropical and temperate oceans, and the adults are target of pelagic squid jigging vessels, This Beautiful Squid was found last quarter of the moon in November 2018, in the shallower water of Anilao Bay which is over 500ft water . After trying with all the different compositions and poses, it offered me this very symmetrical photo with all the tentacles extended, as if it’s trying to show off its beautiful tripes and chromatophores.
