A stunning close-up of a North Pacific giant octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) in the Japan Sea. How did talented Russian photographer Alexander Semenov get so close? He says “It’s not easy to get close, but this one was a very patient and calm one. And he was curious about me, so we contacted a little and I made this shot.”
How cool are these pancakes?! Of all the ocean art out there, and ocean-related food, these are among our faves – marine invertebrate pancakes, straight from Saipancakes. Their talented creator, math-teacher-turned-Saipan-Dad Nathan Shields, needs to package these – they’re waaayyyy better than Eggos.
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus
If I were thou, I’d call me Us.
