Photographer Of The Week

I’m not much of a photographer and I have often wondered whether having eight arms would help me get the perfect shot. This year’s Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition may just prove that it is.

The Best of Show award went to an intriguing close-up of an octopus but the story behind it is even more fascinating.

Submitted by Gaetano Dario Gargiulo he recounts that he was pottering around a tidal pool as the tide was too low to go out any further and noticed an octopus in the shallowest part. He set his camera near its den and the octopus came out to investigate and to the amazement of Gaetano it got to grips with the camera and started to take selfies.

At least the result was more interesting than the usual run of the mill selfies.
