GPO attacks Gdog's camera and won't let go!

Post by Vjw » Sun May 19, 2019 11:45 pm

Gdog, StphnMartin, and I dove Three Tree North last week. We met a Giant Pacific Octopus attempting to steal Gdog's camera!  Next, the octopus grasps a stick while creeping towards StphnMartin, tentacles outstretched.  Apparently changing its mind, it covertly dashes into its den.

WOW ! Great footage !
I am glad Gdog still has his camera. Although the GPO could probably operate it, Sice it is not a member of NWDC, we would never see the results :)

That was so cool! Although I'm sure Gdog was maybe not so thrilled at the time. :)

Does this make up for not seeing a blue ring octo?
