I actually think it is the diver's fault. If he/she hadn't attracted the octopus' attention and curiosity and encouraged interaction, perhaps the octopus would have been alert and would have escaped.

Perhaps. Perhaps had it been food or some other distraction rather than the diver the outcome would have been the same.

True, but the diver could also have been a beacon that attracted the cuttle :P

Who knows :biggrin2:

I was so intriqued by the octopus (and how cute is was as it played with the equipment) I totally didn't see the cuttle. I guess if the diver was looking through the camera, they would be totally oblivious to it too. (Otherwise, I'm fairly sure they would have zoomed out!)
