    My immediate reaction was WOW, for two simultaneous reasons. The vibrant colour of his ’WARNING" rings and the fact that you had made him defensive.
    Wonderful capture Matt and I guess because you have uploaded this that you are still around. :}
    Looks even more amazing enlarged

  • ha ha….yeah luckily this was a friendly one :) I think the tropical species are more photogenic than the ones here, such big vivid rings

    Another wonderful shot, Matt. I was hoping to see some in Borneo last October but I’ll just have to hope I see them around Komodo this year. I haven’t seen one in Sydney for around 30 years.

  • Wow I didnt know that, thought they would be abundant up there. Think we saw one in Bima on the way to Komodo when I was there last so there around

    very, very cool shot Matt.
    I have seen blue-lined octopus down on the NSW south coast (they look quite similar), but I havent seen a wild blue-ringed yet
