Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - PHOTOFOCUS -

Snapped in a la­goon near the is­land of May­otte in the In­dian Ocean, in wa­ter just 30cm deep, this photo of an oc­to­pus on the hunt won

re­cent Un­der­wa­ter Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year award. Gabriel Barathieu, a pro­fes­sional un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­pher, used a 14mm wide an­gle lens and got ex­tremely close to the oc­to­pus, cre­at­ing the im­pres­sion that it is much larger than it ac­tu­ally is.
