Lavender waves
Photo and caption by Ernie Black
I have photographed the hawaiian daytime octopus on multiple occasions and have never seen anything like this. i was lucky enough to intercept this one as it was shooting across the shallows from one patch of reef to another. although it did not ink, after a quick dart to its left, it hulted and took flower shape. i can only assume this was in attempts to intimidate me. the interaction only lasted a couple of seconds before it went to blend in with the reef, leaving me amazed.
