September 6, 2014: Tiny Octopus

This octopus, who was anxious to get away from the bright lights of the remotely operated vehicle, was seen while exploring Washington Canyon on September 6, 2014. Note that the two red dots (lasers) are 10 centimeters apart, meaning that this octopus was pretty small, measuring less than 10 centimeters across.
