Blue ringed octopus

The Blue ringed octopus has enough venom to kill 26 adults and no antivenom exists, top critter!!! Despite the obvious danger they are actually very docile creatures and would rather leave you alone, most accidents occur from handling. I took this picture using my Canon 7d in a Nauticam housing and 100mm macro lens.

These are probably 1 of my favourite octopus, they could easily fit in the palm of your hand, not that you should ever pick 1 up!
