[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this baby octopus snorkeling in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. The baby was inside a mussel conch laying on the botton of 3 just meters of water. I took the picture underwater with my Nikonos-V and a macro kit over 35mm lens. This octopus measures are around 3 or 4 centimeters. I worked it at photoshop because it was a little bit oe. Cheers!

Excellent detail and POV. It's a shame the background is almost the same colour. Doesn't make the octopus stand out at all. Still a very good close up

Well done

Little tiny beast of the ocean, cute, good to eat!

Well done. Nice colour saturation, strong composition and sharp in all the right places.
