    What a beautiful image.  At first I thought it was a painting.

    Imposing human weakness on animals. Come on he doesn’t need sunscreen. He’s going to live about two years. He’s never going to get skin cancer. Let him sun himself and not worry about sunscreen.

    Hee hee.  Lump.

    You should know better than to call that a head lump. How mammal of you.

    It’s just a small case of mantle gas (or “the suds” as the Nickelodeon™ crowd would term it).  ..probably had some sea beans for lunch.

    This is the beginning of the end.  Pretty soon they will be walking on land and enslaving humanity!

    That octopus needs to move its garden to the shade.

    “Octopus garden in the sun” makes so much more sense from a horticultural perspective, doesn’t it?

    The mantle “lump” isn’t the “head” of the octopus. It contains the guts, heart, and gonads.  The head’s the part between the tentacles and the mantle.

    I’m mostly amazed at how clear the water is.

      And how still the surface is.  Almost the way it would look if an aquarium tank had a large photo of the Italian coastline pasted to its back wall, and a photo was taken through the glass from in front.

    Holy perspective Batman. Am I the only one who thought that was a giant octopus masquerading as an island to lure unlucky boaters?

    It’s an outrage… as Tony Harrison would say.
