Caribbean Reef Octopus


This little guy is a juvenile caribbean reef octopus, smaller than my fist. I took quite a few shots, and I was able to get close enough to switch to macro mode on my camera. I was not more that 6 inches away. It got scared and dug itself into the sand under the rock right next to it.

For some reason the eye looks quite mesmerizing.
