Octopus cape

I spotted an octopus on a late afternoon dive. He was casually moving from reef to reef, but occasionally, he would fan out his arms. In a way, it reminds me of a superhero fanning his cape before saving the world. I was able to dive with this octopus for about 20 minutes and observe how he changed colors as he moved over his environment.
