another world

I´m amazed how much you like my underwater-but-stay-dry-shots, so I will post some more for you - octopus´s garden III

Btw I came across the story how Ringo got inspired:
"The idea for the song came about when Starr was on a boat belonging to comedian Peter Sellers in Sardinia in 1968. He ordered fish and chips for lunch *haha, what else*, but instead of fish he got squid (it was the first time he'd eaten squid, and he said, "It was OK. A bit rubbery. Tasted like chicken.") Then the boat's captain told Starr about how octopuses travel along the sea bed picking up stones and shiny objects with which to build gardens." (wiki)

I didn´t know that too - I just know they´re the most intelligent mollusca in the world. Not long ago there was a female octopus in the news for unpluggin her bassin in an aquarium, forgot where that happened - very tricky, was she trying to escape?edit: Found it: it was in Los Angeles - 200 gallons of water - that´s about 1700 liter XD...

Please respect my work.
