    Nice pictures and sequence. I can imagine it gliding along and then shooting off.

    I just love those big octos! Haven't seen too many that are comfortable enough to pose like that. 1st shot is just great! Good light nice blue background maybe just a notch too much red but hey that's just tiny detail.

    Those are awesome. Generally, the only time we see Octos on sand here is at night. The rest of the time they are in holes, far from sight.

    Nope. It was way North of it and at 70 feet. The LC is at 57 feet.
