    Loved the ominous arm shadow in the GoPro shots. Posted on the TONMO Facebook page.

    Hi and thank you that you shared my video on Facebook. :smile2:

    Here still the little story of the Octopus encounter with my GoPro.
    I have positioned the running GoPro camera (with a switched on lamp) in front of the whole of the Octopus and than I was leaving the place. After round about 10 minutes I returned and fetched my camera. When I was back from holiday I watched the recording. Then I saw the surprise that the Octopus touched the camera. :coffee:
    I think the Octopus was interested in the flashing red recording lamp.
    Next year I will try to make some more creative recordings of Octopus.

    Greetings
    Olli

    Thank you for the great video. How exciting to find an octopus when swimming and getting it on video.
