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
