Photographer's Note

This picture was taken at an old Aquarium (Vasco da Gama), built by the late King Carlos I in 1898 to celebrate the 500 years of the Discovery of the First Sea Way to India. Although very old, it is very interesting because has many rare species from all the World including fishes from African lakes. This big Octopus (probably 2 to 3 kgs - 4 to 6 pounds) caught my attention. I don't know really if he was seeing me but I enjoyed this little chat and wanted to share it with you. It is very common in our coastal waters and appreciated ... by all "gourmets".
