Happy Monday! If you need a pick me up here is a video of Rambo the Octopus photographer….. not a photographer specialising in shooting cephalopods, but an Octopus turning the tables and shooting humans!
Animal trainers at the Sea Life Aquarium in Auckland, New Zealand trained Rambo to photograph anyone who stands in front of her tank using a Sony DSC-TX30 specially rigged for ease of Octopus use. Trainer Mark Vette said “when we first tried to get [Rambo] to take a photo, it only took her three attempts to understand the process.”
Visitors pay $2 per photo and pose in front of a backdrop, the proceeds benefit the aquarium, hopefully with a little pocket money for the photographer herself!

Haha! I was not expecting that. What a cool idea.. but how long do you have to wait until the octopus takes the picture? Hm….
