Watching an Octopus Hunt
Scroll through the above photos

On a recent trip to Central California, we were exploring tidepools with our eyes, when we came across an octopus. Resisting the urge to touch it or interrupt it at all, we instead watched from above as he hunted the expansive pool he was in.
We were rewarded with an incredible show. The octopus worked his way around the pool, going in and out of caves, scaring out small fish, probably eating some and constantly changing his colors as he moved about.
Such an incredible creature, beautiful and alien-looking. So glad we didn't bother it and were able to watch nature in action.
