Beautiful underwater footage captured by Jonathan Gordon shows just how perfectly an octopus can camouflage itself into its surroundings.

This guy took me completely by surprise while snorkeling in the Caribbean. I dove down to have a look at the shell that you can see just under where the octopus appears and as I approached the octopus came out of hiding. I had literally no idea he was there until I was about a metre away.
