    There are times when you happen to catch a subject that not only shows a subject, but tells a "story" ... a moment in time that you were fortunate enough to be there to capture.

    Last night I chanced on one of those ... an octopus that was in the process of capturing its supper ...

    Let's see your favorite "story" shots ... pictures that captured a particular moment when you just happened to be in the right place at the right time ...

    I can empathise with that octo, I too sometimes have a great desire for something crunchy ;>)

    it is a Tiger hitting a hooked Marlin,

    not the best shot, the video is better, lots of fin tips, felt like the wrong place.

    Great capture Bob!

    On a night dive on Buddy's Reff (Bonaire) I was shooting this pregnant Arrow Crab when it started releasing it's eggs (I believe I may have posted this last year).

    I've posted this before but it fits in the right place, right time theme so well.
    Last summer in Kona, the moray went around my lovely brides neck!
    See the short youtube clip.

    No help from me, Rick ... that octo captured its own Happy Meal ... :D

    Ooooh ... now THAT must've been a pucker moment ... :11:

    I can relate ... I was diving with my wife once (back when we were married) and she swam a little too close to a ling cod egg mass. Papa Ling latched onto her leg and started shaking it like a dog. I had to whap that fish upside the head a few times with my dive light ... all the while shouting into my reg, "GET OFF, THAT'S MINE!"

    We've since learned to recognize ling cod eggs and keep a respectful distance ...

    Good find...you can always make things happen as well. Just find a crab and feed it to the octopus then start snapping away. Nature photographers do this all the time.
