4 octopuses

Today, I was blessed with 4 octopuses!  Certainly a record for this long weekend’s books.

I am kinda sad and this didn’t occur to me until later…think maybe octopus 2 was at the end of his/her life.

You know how they normally turn a dark maroon color when they see me?  Well, this one didn’t turn color at all and when i looked at the pix, she looked old and white and tired…

See what I mean?  She’s in the den, just below the rocks.  You can hardly tell her from the surrounding sand…and not in a good way!  Really, it kinda bums me out…such cool animals and they live such a short length of time.

But we did have good sunrise:

There was also a very nice moorish idol, and a damsel fish nearby….just to compare the two sets of stripes…

Both have stripes, but they sure look different.

You can see how the water was still funky visibility, but the cool pattern of this tang shone through anyway:

There was also a big ulua that was circling.  Turned out there was an eel trying to escape. See the youtube…look for octopigirl7.

This is literally THE END!
