Tim Samuel took the incredible picture while freediving in Australia’s Byron Bay
A diver has taken this incredible photo of a fish trapped inside a jellyfish – which it then steered around the sea.
Tim Samuel took the picture while freediving in Australia’s Byron Bay.
He wrote on Instagram : “I found this fish trapped inside a Jellyfish while freediving in Byron Bay. He was trapped in there but controlled where the Jellyfish was moving.”
The photographer added: “It seemed completely trapped in there, like it had somehow managed to swim inside and then was unable to back itself out.
“The fish was able to propel the jellyfish forward and controlled its movement to an extent.

“The jellyfish threw it off-balance though, and they would wobble around, and sometimes get stuck doing circles.
“I contemplating freeing the fish as I felt bad for it, but in the end decided to just let nature run its course, which was a difficult decision for me to make.”
