Tentacle

A part of the giant Pacific octopus at the National Aquarium, Baltimore. As anybody who has visited an octopus in an aquarium would know, this creature lives in near-darkness and I had to shoot under those conditions.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
