A rare Caribbean Two-spot Octopus

This picture depicts a rare Caribbean Two-spot Octopus which was moving over some rocks in Francis Bay, Virgin Islands National Park. While moving, the octopus changed its texture and color patterns, here revealing 2 bright blue eye-spots. It sought shelter within the spines of the Long-spined Black Sea Urchin in the right side of the photo.
