Well I‘m back in the water…. we have had a lot of rain and strong wind most of the last month but yesterday the tide was right and the weather was beautiful. So it was off to the Island to see “what” was around. I went to the usual “dens” and sure enough there was a new octopus in residence. Guessing by the arm length (7.5cm not stretched out) it’s a few months old. Moving the camera in slowly I took a couple of pics from that distance so it would be a little used to the camera flash (which is on a low level to avoid frightening it). After a couple of shots like that I turn the flash up so that the pics are viewable. Over the next 20 minutes I managed to get it to reach out and touch my fingers. I then fed it a periwinkle before leaving it in peace.
