Went to Junkyard on Sunday, and came across this octo with some serious Ninja action...!

He really would have been epic on video (Sorry S&V) as his colors were cycling like crazy going to orange, white, pink, red, yellow in the beginning! He also gave a good ink squirt!

Let me know which one you like best

Wow, that's a stunning specimen! I've never seen one like that. Amazing you went wide angle at the junkyard!

I like the second one!

Absolute WOW!!!!
I like 1, 4, and 6 best. 1 because if kelp contrast behind it, 4 because it’s reaching out with tentacle, and 6 because reaching up with tentacle. Did I say, wow! :joshsmith: :taco: :notworthy:

Frickin' Amazing! I can't pick a favorite out of the whole bunch... Those are truly wall-hangers (epic shots)! Tryouts for the SSDC perhaps? (Salish Sea Dance Company) =D>
