Superb capture. We have octopuses are highly aggressive and attack divers only in October at small depths 3-20 m. Like. Best wishes from Russia (the coast of Japan sea), Veniamin.

Thank you Veniamin. Normally the Giant Pacific Octopus is quite shy and is usually seen in their dens. This one must have been a bit crazed and hungry. All the best to you on the other side of the world. Derek
