14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Tiny red octopus (Octopus rubescens) in a shallow tidepool.
I had worked the morning low tide and was on my way out when this little red octopus oozed into view. It posed for about 5 seconds then continued on its way. I was fortunate to catch this shot before it disappeared out of sight.
