I came upon this little octopus 1 day, when I first saw it I didn't have my wide angle lense on and the octopus was very shy as is normal with them. I put my wide angle lense on and the octopus's attitude changed completely, it came up really close to me, to the point that its tentacles were wrapped around my hands and camera and that is when I got this shot. I kept changing my lense to see the reaction and it was the same each time. My theory was that it could see its own reflection in the glass of the wide angle lense but whatever the reason, it was a special moment underwater.
