I recently got back from a month long research cruise north west of hawaii. Unfortunately, the research cruise had nothing to do with cephalopods. Fortunately, I got to spend ten days diving on Oahu before the cruise. On one of the dives someone found a tako (that's japanese for octopus and that's what they call them over there). We played with him for a while and I took some pictures. The tako wasn't too happy about being played with but was soon returned to his home unharmed. I botched the exposures a little bit but a few of the pictures came out alright.
