Luckily, in Raja Ampat, one of our guides found an octopus. They have such great camo they can be tough to spot. He actually spotted a couple others on the trip but they went into hiding or were too deep for me to see, so this ended up being the only one I saw.
I can't free dive, but my husband does - so he got a closer shot:
At one point, my husband dove down, and the octopus flashed a super cool burgundy color as he got closer to it - but it didn't hide (and he wasn't that close)
We stayed as long as we could with this octopus - and I would have liked to stay longer - but everyone else, including both guides, was already pretty far ahead and it isn't a good idea to get too spaced out....so we had to go. What a great sighting!!!!
