This Little guy was hiding in the hole and came out long enough for me to snap two photos. Take at Leo Carrillo State Park in about 25ft Saltwater, Water Temp 60, Visibility about 10ft. No External Strobe, Just internal flash.

A fine double-eye portrait indeed Erika, thanks to the illumination provided by your internal flash, the colours are again quite natural. You also gave us a very detailed and up to date classification, one small point though, the order name Octopoda is no longer applicable, instead Octobrachia is used, to prevent any misuse regarding the second order Decabrachia (formerly Decapoda, which caused some serious misuse with decapodan crustaceans).
Cheers,
Mehmet
