I don't know if this link has been posted elsewhere .... I just stumbled upon it. Sensational stuff!! I've posted the link here because of the cetacean interest online (and, of course, because these animals eat squid and octopus .... and are just soooo cool .... and because imagery like this is so extremely rare!).

Yes, that's a good one, that. I've got a few others from the GOM as well, generally not as deep as that one but very interesting. I would post them, but they belong to the oil companies so i don't think that would go down too well. Happens quite a bit apparently.....

What i find amazing is how they can move so precisely and gracefully, just stopping in the water and rolling around, and they're obviously very interested in the ROVs and clearly like to rub against them.

We've actually incorporated this idea into the oceans series.....
