This is a video of ocean life photographer Timothy Ewing taking pictures of a red octopus while the octopus checks him out. Whenever Timothy starts to disappear behind the rock, the octopus's curiosity gets the best of it and it raises itself to see where he went. Octopuses really are amazing creatures. And this one in particular reminds me of those yip-yip Martians from Sesame Street. I loved those guys. I always wished they'd come abduct me. But noooooo, I get abducted by the terrifying looking aliens with all the cold metal probes and sensors. I think they wanted me to mate with their queen! "What makes you say that?" They made me mate with their queen.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Lucinda, who plays hide and seek with all the sea creatures because she is a mermaid. Lucky!
