Location: Crabs Beach, Swansea Heads, NSW, Australia.
Two very large Giant Cuttlefish twoing and froing in the swell in a courtship ritual. They ripple dark colours down their sides in a vivid display of communication that only they understand. These two will have bred several times, the female possibly accepting sperm from other smaller males which we spotted hanging around the area. The female deposits up to 100 eggs in a bunch stuck to the roofs of caves before the male and female both die.
