Wonder Octopus

Lendell and I found a Wonder Octopus (Octopus sp. 20) at Tasi Tolu (12 meters) today. If you don't already own a copy of Macrolife: UnderWater Malaysia by Andrea and Antonella Ferrari, run out to the corner bookstore and get one! Ok, you may need to order it on Amazon. According to the Ferraris, the Wonder Octopus is "very rarely observed but never forgotten once seen". They also mentioned how difficult it is to photograph; I was able to frame two shots before our Wonder Octopus wondered into a hole.
