But in an octopuses garden OTOH ..
Now that is a beautiful creature. Thank you, Dr. M
Beautiful; great colors.
Hope you and Mary are well today.
These photos always make me think of glass paperweights. No, I wonder never be so evil as to encase a real octopus in glass, but it would make a beautiful design in colored glass.
Walter Solomon says
Even if the octopus is already dead? When I was a kid, an uncle of mine had a paperweight that was a crystal ball with an actual, dead tarantula incased inside. I was very fascinated by it.
Then there are those art pieces that feature actual, adult sharks suspended inside a block of clear resin. I think an octopus paperweight would be really cool.
Walter Solomon@7 I suppose if you found it dead in pristine condition. That seems more likely when the animal has an exoskeleton.

is that a fractal octopus?
Reminds me of when I used to sit around and imagine genitalia as a child. My mind’s eye conjured such fantastical arrays of perfectly interlocking tentacles, toothy orifices, and filamented pistons, all engaged in delicate dances of seduction, diving, caressing, and enfolding in such sublime unity. Oh, how transcendent it was when two or three or five became one quivering, pulsating whole!
I have to admit, learning more about anatomy and sex was something of a letdown. For more innocent days, eh?

Is “Todd” a common name among cephalopods? And what ethnicity does “Bretl” impute to our 8-armed friend?
