Interesting behaviour. Watched for 10+ minutes while this reef octopus ran its tentacles all over its body. Assuming this was not a sponge bath or a lonely teenager, what was it doing?

What I liked about the shot was the complex and pleasing background of soft coral. I was thrilled when Ms. Titan swam over it.
