On a recent blogger tour around Italy, we visited the island of Ponza, about two hours south of Rome and a three-hour ferry ride. While there, I had the chance to go scuba diving for the very first time and took along my GoPro to capture the moment. And one such moment was with this little octopus that we found under a rock at the sea-bed.

Now, personally I’ve never met an octopus, but it seemed much obliged to meet me. Given the uber cuteness and subtle hilarity of this photo, I want you to come up with a fitting caption for this photo!

    Fantastic shot of a very cool experience. Was that little guy the only one you found or were there more?

      Thank you =) Was an amazing experience for sure…as it turns out that was the only one we found since the max depth in the area was like 15-20 meters

    What a really cool surprise! There definitely is subtle hilarity as if you’re shaking hands with the octopus. Maybe a good caption would be something like “Man and octopus get formally acquainted!”
