Australian photographer Tim Samuel caught on camera a very unusual sight while he was free diving in Byron Bay. The photo caused strong reactions from all over the world once it got uploaded to Instagram. You can see what is on the intriguing photo below: A fish swimming inside a jellyfish!
Being a sea photographer and surf instructor for quite some time, he never saw something like this before and he thinks he probably will never see it again.
“I knew I had stumbled upon something pretty special, but I didn’t realize no one had photographed this behavior before, and I haven’t heard of anyone ever seeing this before,” Tim said to Mashable Australia. What happened next with this strange duo, nobody really knows.
Whether or not this is actually possible, Associate Professor Ian Tibbetts who is a fish biologist at the Centre for Marine Science at the University of Queensland said it is more common than you think, it could also be that the fish is seeking shelter under a jelly fish, which they are known to do. He said this to Australian Geographic.
” It’s difficult to tell whether disaster has just struck, or whether the fish is happy to be in there. Although by the photographer’s description of the fish swimming, my guess is that it is probably quite happy to be protected in there”
