Octopi are awesome creatures and this guy wanted his profession to be connected with them. In Russia it was hard to realize but he found the way out and started to photograph them in the Japanese Sea being in Vladivostok.
Their eyes are amazing and very clever. They look at objects around attentively and when they die you can’t help crying.
Cephalopods are reasonable, they have intellect and character. Yes, each octopus is an individual! They can learn different things and can express various emotions.
Octopi are masters of disguise.
The biggest octopi live in the Japanese Sea.
This one is abot 3m big. Some of them are 6 m!
Octopi eat much, grow fast and for all their life and they live till the first reproduction like all cephalopods. Usually it is one year. Then they die. After reproduction they stop eating, such a signal they get from some gland. If the gland is removed an octopus will continue to eat and grow till it dies for some other reasons. The biggest octopi live for about 3 years, for this time they manage to grow to 6 m. Thus, giant octopi can be called sad virgins waiting for their happiness…
The worst enemy of the octopi – fish called Chirolophis japonicus. It likes to eat tentacles of octopi. Luckily octopi know it well and always try to escape.
And it’s easy to understand the fish – tentacles look appetizing!
When you have such a hobby you definitely have them in the fridge too…
