According to my friends, my spirit animal is an octopus. I’m ok with that.
Blue ringed octopus (genus Hapalochlaena). Taken in Malapascua, Philippines.
No marine animals and corals were harmed when this photo was taken, nor were any rocks (substrate), or animal environment disturbed. No pokers/muck sticks were used and no behaviour manipulation was employed.
If that’s how you take photos too, include the above in your captions and show that you don’t need to manipulate, damage, or destroy anything to get a decent shot.
