Description: 

This O. vulgaris is using a diematic display as a shock tactic to intimidate any potential predators. After taking this shot, Dr. Wood looked down at his camera and then back up to the octopus and he could not find it. His dive buddy found it though (image 1407) perfectly camouflaged on a coral projection.
