Nice pics! What kind of camera? Also, the one shot he does look startled. Do you use your flash? I would try not to if you are as we don't have documentation, but it has been questioned if the flash hurts or causes damage to their eyes. Ink went blind toward the end of her life, and at that point I did take alot of pics using the flash, but we never really confirmed if that was a partial reason for her blindness.

Nice pics and good looking octo. You said Octavius is a vulgaris, I believe.
