a fish which is not a fish

Despite their common name, cuttlefish are not fish but molluscs. Cuttlefish are sometimes called the chameleon of the sea because of their remarkable ability to rapidly alter their skin colour at will. Their skin flashes a fast-changing pattern as communication to other cuttlefish and to camouflage them from predators.

As I took this picture in June 2007 at Pandan Island, Mindoro I felt that this cuttlefish was seeing in me less of a predator since it actually came out of its hole following me and altering its skin very quickly. First love?
