Common Octopus

Hidden in plain sight, the octopus is plentiful, but rarely seen while diving around Perth. They are able to change colour very quickly to blend in to the background and squeeze in to tiny spaces to hide from predators or to wait for a meal to pass. It was pure chance that let me spot this one, sitting quietly and letting the world pass by!


  1. Interesting picture I think?!! No actually hate it - it is the only thing I can say I truely hate and that is an occy - nasty nasty nasty!

  2. What a fantastic image, when you pull it in close you can see some tentacles and all sorts of other fascinating bits and pieces, excellent catch, well spotted!
