Octo trifecta

Saw 3 of my octo-buddies today! yay. But the frogfish was probably too far out into the wave zone, so I didn't get out really far enough to spot it. Maybe next time.

Following is octopus #1 just after it blew sand into the water. Trying to get me to vacate, no doubt.
 This one did come out more after I went away then sneaked back.

 Octopus 2 was in there, but hard to catch on film.

 Octopus #3. Small one.

This is what the octopus looks like when it has blown ends up with a lot on itself!
#1 was the one that showed itself the most. The other two had the main objective of hiding well.

This cone shell appeared to have someone inside. I hope it was the usual animal...
