Marine photographer Tim Samuel managed to capture the moment while swimming at The Pass in Byron Bay off Australia’s east coast in December, but the photo only went viral after he posted it online this week.

Tim saw the flummoxed fish while out free diving in Byron Bay with a friend. Nobody quite knows how it managed to get in there (alcohol may have been involved) but despite its obvious disadvantage, the fish was still able to control the movements of the equally hapless jellyfish.

Samuel said he did contemplate helping the fish escape as he “felt bad for it”, but ultimately “just let nature run its course.”

Samuel has posted numerous incredible photos of life underwater to his Instagram account and on his website, including amazing close-ups of turtles and eagle rays.
