Underwater Photographer Captures Octopus Disappearing Beneath Sand

An underwater photographer in Australia captured mesmerising images of an octopus burying itself underneath sand in the ocean.

Freediver and keen photographer Jules Casey is based on the Mornington Peninsula, which is on the shores of Port Phillip Bay, Victoria.

Casey often posts footage of what she sees below the waves at Port Phillip Bay to her OneBreathDiver Instagram account, where she has over 90,000 followers.

Her work notes both interesting marine life, as well as dangers posed to underwater creatures by water pollution. She originally posted this footage to Instagram on April 25. Credit: Jules Casey via Storyful
