Happy World Octopus Day! 

Blue-ringed octopus (Hapalochlaena sp.)

Malapascua, Philippines 

P.S. It’s Octopuses not octopi. 

Please stop what you are doing and look at these baby Lionfish! 

Remember:-

Lionfish in Atlantic = invasive = problem.

Lionfish in Pacific = native = not a problem.

Despite heavy rains last night, this photo was not taken in our flooded backyard. Rather, it was taken earlier this week at Coogee beach :). But then, I suppose that’s our big blue backyard…
