The best photos are the ones you don’t plan. Of course, you need patience and time for pictures that require careful preparation, but sometimes this is what we artists get.
Tim Samuel, an Australian photographer, was freediving in Byron Bay when he captured these pictures. He had no idea there would be such a remarkable marine life scene, which made for one-of-a-kind photos.
On his Instagram, he wrote:
Despite the fish’s worried face, Ian Tibbetts, an Associate Professor at the University of Queensland, explained to Australian Geographic that “it’s difficult to tell whether disaster has just struck, or whether the fish is happy to be in there.” But, of course, some fish breeds seek shelter underneath the jellyfish stingers, so perhaps this little guy just slightly missed his mark. Either way, Samuel’s shots certainly win the award for the weirdest sight of the day.
Samuel’s underwater shots are unlike anything you’ve seen before. From the weirdest scenes to the beauty that will make your heart skip a beat, he captures it beautifully in his photography.
“I knew pretty quickly what I was looking at. Even so, I had to make a couple of double-takes, though. I was both amazed and confused by what I saw,” said the photographer.
“It was interesting to see how the two of them moved through the water. “The fish pushed the jellyfish away but wobbled around and was being thrown off course by the jellyfish, and sometimes was forced to swim in circles,” he added.
The jellyfish photos were sent to several researchers, including Lucas Brotz from the University of British Columbia. Among them, Brotz described them as “pretty cool!”
The others had never seen anything like it before and were equally impressed by this discovery in their fields.
