Squidward - we were doing an early morning dive off Turtle Reef and encountered a squad of squid on our return. They were so interested in us and our cameras it was like they were asking us for a photoshoot!  Oly EMDEM1 12-50m lens

A very rare find and fascinating looking fish. The Oxeye dory normally lives in deep offshore waters, but this one got swept inshore by strong currents caused by up-welling.
