A quick video of a two-spot octopus I found.

Another fascinating part of field herping, along with all the other natural wonders we encounter, is the invertebrates! This forum is dedicated to both field and captive invertebrates.

That's the coolest footage I'm seen of an octopus Awesome colors and clarity. I like how you can hear the waves in the background as well. Leaving the audio in was a good choice I gotta try tide pooling sometime. When the best time of year and condition to look for something like this? I figure after a storm and low tide, but is there a breeding season or certain month to look for them?
Thanks porter, so far I haven't seen any seasonal patterns (I just started in the summer). Obviously you need to plan your visit at low tide. I look under rocks at the low tide line and usually that works pretty well. The audio is actually just from imovie lol. Other wise there would have been a bunch of talking.
