This was a very fun photo to take. I was diving at a commonly known site on the east coast in South Florida called the Blue Heron Bridge. Seeing octopus here is fairly common, and I always love playing with them. Octopus can be very inquisitive and engaging if approached slowly and calmy with minimal bubble disturbance if possible. Every octopus is different and will respond differently, each one having its own personality, same as humans. The octopus depicted in this photo responded to me fluttering and wiggling my fingers which it would try and reach out and grab with one of its tentacles.
