Giant Cuttlefish Sepia apama

From my dive on the weekend, a giant cuttlefish under an overhang with sea tulips and honeycomb sponge.  This was at Barren's Hut, a dive site open to the ocean just outside the heads at Port Hacking, in about 25m of water.  Great conditions on the dive with around 20m visibility and water still warm at 20°C.
