Thanks for sharing...Ina...

Excellent capture, HiRo. Original coverage of an octopus on TN, I think.
Great colors, detail, lighting, and POV.
Hope you weren't in any danger to take this?
Thank you for sharing it with us and welcome to TN!

Certainly an unusual point of view of an octopus. What a great shot. Not many of us get a chance to photograph underwater. What a special opportunity to come across this octopus. How big was it? Great shot. Thanks for sharing, and a warm welcome to TN, Hiro. ; )

Nice octopus, Hiro! The colours are great. You should take this picture from a better position to show its eyes. I know, I know! Sometimes its difficult to have this position because the octopus is always between the rocks. But its all I can critique from your nice photo! Tfs!
