Concerning message #19095:
The photo was taken in situ just as I found it. The dive was a bit a surgey and my guess is that it was knocked off its perch!

I didn't think that you had 'posed' the animal. It was just the way the mantle was wrinkled and not flat that made me feel the animal was 'uncomfortable'. Knocked off its perch by the surge is probably a more likely suggestion than a curious fish.
