I thnk that the aquarium is a good place to get ideas for aliens. This is a cuttlefish. Watch how it moves, and then think of this on an alien planet.
In filming this, I was a good girl, and made sure that I did not have the flash on. I checked by turning the camera down and filming a bit of the floor, first. So far, so good. Then I tried to take a picture of the creature -- after all, my flash was off, right? Right?
Apparently the flash can be set to on for photos, but not movies. Always check when you change modes.
Fortunately the cuttlefish was in a good mood, and no one needed to clean out the aqaurium that day. But I did feel like a total idiot.
