throwback to the beautiful octopus (Graneledone boreopacifica) that was seen at 1164 m depth on the Davidson (Pierce) Seamount in the SGaan Kinghlas-Bowie Protected Area during E/V Nautilus dives earlier this year. It didn’t move very much for the entirety of the visit to the area, which led researchers to believe this octo might be brooding. It was an enchanting sight to watch this octopus respirate at the bottom of the Northeast Pacific Ocean from a computer in Philly

It is not focused on any particular niche interest, however, I am a fountain pen user/collector, hence the semi-related "squid" name. (Squid. Ink. Get it?) Also... Cephalopods. Analog/digital photography, science. It’s all good. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow the code of conduct.
Bow to your cephalopod overloards!
