Radiant Squid

Big Fin Reef Squid

A radiant big fin reef squid (Sepioteuthis lessoniana) photographed during a night dive in Dar es Salaam. These squids are very curious and attracted to dive lights at night. Some researches suggest that squid swim toward light because they think it’s food but no one actually knows why squid are so predictably and suicidally drawn to light sources.

Photo was shot with a Sony DSC-RX100M II Camera in a Nauticam housing with a INON S-2000 Strobe, a hand-mounted SOLA 2100 Video Light and a Sola P1200 red focus light.
