Monday Labor Day Sept 3 - 2 octopuses

Swimming on Monday instead of Tuesday made me hungry for hotdogs and potato salad. What else does one do on a holiday?
Well, octosnoop, of course!
 When I arrived, two seals were playing near the entry point. So I waited patiently for them to move along. OK, truth: not patiently. But I did wait. They eventually went down and landed on a quieter beach.

Which freed me up to get into the water and find a Spotfin Scorpion Fish.
 Def not the prettiest fish God ever made, but...

Nice clouds and light.
 Cowry shell, all alone on the bottom. (And yes, I left it there.)

Octopus #1 hiding in a cleft of the rock. Very well camouflaged, I thought.
 Octopus 2 showing another type of hiding place and its siphon.

Aren't these the prettiest fishes? I am thinking this is a male, but not positive. I think the females are more red on the head. But as I said, I could be totally wrong.
And that's it! Because there weren't a lot of great shots, I waited to write the post. Now, stay tuned for today's adventures, coming up.
