Trying to catch shrimp. Rapidly changing color from red to grey.
These are all shots of the same individual, as it first tried to hide from me, then gave up and swam away.

My first cephalopod for iNat. Was cool to see the viscous nature of the ink and the copious amounts it shot out. Amazing when it transformed into a rock before us. (Photo#3)
