Today in Octopus 101: Did you know the pupils of an octopus work completely differently than ours? ⠀ Instead of focusing light through a narrow pinhole, cephalopod pupils blow light out. ⠀ Once light has been separated into its component wavelengths, cephalopods can use physical tricks—for instance changing the depth of the eyeball, or altering the distance between lens and retina—to focus different wavelengths of light on the retina individually. ⠀ This allows for colours to be discriminated. 🐙 ⠀ 🐟⠀ 🐟⠀ 🐟⠀ 🐟⠀ 🐟⠀ 🐟⠀ #mantadive #mantadivegiliair #iamssi #mantadivegilit #iamssi_indonesia #octonation #marineanimals #theMantaWay #oceananimals #thegiliway #underwaterlife #waterlust #madeofocean #discoverocean #water_of_our_world #intotheblue #lovethesea #scubadivers #scubadiverslife #scubalife #didyouknow #octopus #uwphotography #underwaterphoto #underwaterphotography #macrophoto #macrophotography #macroworld #macro_perfection #macroshot

The @heronisland wreck could honestly be one of the best snorkelling spots in the country. Flying the drone just before leaving on our final morning, I counted around a dozen reef sharks, even more eagle rays, five or so turtles and I’m not totally sure, but possibly even a manta ray! Swipe for a glimpse at just a couple of the locals ⬅️

Always a favourite Mona Vale Rockpool by @newlightvisuals • • • • • Classic Mona topdown. It’s hard to go past shooting this awesome Rockpool. It’s the closest beach to my home and is one of the best spots in Sydney. . . . . 📷 @djiglobal #mavic2pro F/3.5 | 1/400 sec | iso 100 .

Baracuda! The barracuda is known to be an aggressive and dominant predator, often relying on the surprise tactic in order to catch its prey. Barracudas are also able to swim at over 40 km/h in short bursts which they do to overtake prey that may be trying to swim away.

INCREDIBLE! #Repost @oceanramsey with @get_repost ・・・ By @oceanramsey “What it’s like to lock eyes with a great white as it slowly and directly approaches me is a feeling I’ve been fortunate to experience many times before but how’s the rough toothed dolphin escort too 😱❤️🦈❤️ I can’t say enough about the importance of sharks for healthy marine ecosystems, for the ocean, we need sharks and yet, perhaps because of the negative and inaccurate way they are portrayed in mass media many people do not care that they are being killed at a rate of 70,000,000-100,000,000 every year! What’s worse, they are killed mostly just for #sharkfinsoup or for #sharkfishing as #sharksportfishing I would encourage you to take a look at the above hashtags and see the cruelty and waste and compare it to this reality of peaceful and respectful coexistence. #helpsavesharks #savetheocean I do not encourage people to do this. I’ve been working with sharks for over 15 years, over 30 species including white sharks all around the world. They are #apexpredatornotmonster not puppies...but this was the gentlest grandma great #whiteshark ive ever met ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Deepest gratitude for my team and the incredible shot I will cherish forever @camgrantphotography Freediving this morning with @oneoceandiving #oneoceanohana @juansharks ❤️ @mermaid_kayleigh 💙 🌅🦈 @oneoceanhawaii @waterinspired @oneoceanconservation @oneoceaneducation @oneoceanglobal @travelcoffeeandsharks @discoversharks Fins @cressi1946 #tigersharkwetsuit by @xcelwetsuits 💙🦈💙 #greatwhitehawaii #divewithsharks #greatwhitesharks #oceanramsey #oneoceandiving #ocean #sharks #instagram #instagood #today #amazing #beautiful #madeofocean #teamoneocean

That one time I took 11 of my nearest and dearest diving with me for my 30th birthday celebrations. They say never take your friends or family diving because it will be a shit show. It was, but it was a beautiful shit show. Thankyou @mekanphotography for capturing it all.
