Giant Pacific Octopus at 53 feet deep

When I found this guy in its den, he was hiding behind the rocks, but as soon as I turned the focus lights on and started to shoot at the entrance of the den, he started to come closer, ended up grabbing my fisheye dome port of my camera housing with his suckers, and he stared to pull my camera back into his den. He probably saw the reflection of himself in the fisheye dome port, and thought that it was another GPO invading his territory with a help of human or something.

Location: Tacoma, Washington USA
