Purple Spikes - this little hairy squat lobster was playing hide-n-seek with a friend on the outside of a large sponge. It was difficult to get him to slow down and look at the camera - Oly Em1 43 macro

BluRing - we were fortunate to find this blue ring octo as we were diving Giant Clams in Puerto Galera. Such an amazing sight and as you can tell - he was a bit upset with all the cameras. Oly Em1 with 12-50 set on 43 macro.

The octopus was trying it's best to go unnoticed in a wall face of Pescador Island, Moal Boal. I wanted to capture the eye of the octopus peering out at me, and thinking "has the diver seen me?"
