You know how it goes. You’re out at the beach with your friends, catching some sun and enjoying the sound of the crashing waves. You get up to take a dip in the ocean and cool off, then discover something- a fish inside a jellyfish! We’ve all experienced that, right? Oh you haven’t?
That’s probably because it is an incredibly rare opportunity to see something like that. Tim Samuel is an Australian photographer who was out free-diving with a friend in Byron Bay last December. He is the lucky person who swambled (stumbled + swam) upon the hapless fish who was caught inside the jellyfish. Samuel said he hasn’t seen anything like that in his five years as a photographer, and we believe him.
Despite the odd circumstances that must have happened for this to take place, the fish didn’t appear to be too upset about it’s predicament. In fact, the fish was able to control the movements of the jellyfish and determine what direction it went in.
Enjoy these photos; they are probably the only time you will see something like this!
