Night Octopus! I came across this octopus on a night dive. It slid up against a wall of coral and spread itself wide. It changed colors and textures repeatedly while I took this photograph.

This Christmas Tree Worm was a rather ugly brownish color when I first spotted it. But, when lit it because this beautiful red/white color and was breathtaking. This is without a dopter.
