Catalina Island, CA
I spent nearly an entire dive with this octopus. I happened across it while practicing with a new macro lens on a dive at Casino Point, Catalina Island. This guy didn't escape into a hole or flee, he hung out and I got to watch him go through stages of alert until he relaxed and let me hang out with him. This shot with shallow focus, highlighting his eye was my favorite of the many that came from out time together.
very minor exposure
