A Kraken from the Deep (English Style)

A chance encounter with the Curled Octopus (Eledone cirrhosa) near Sunderland on the NE coast of England.  Seeing octopi in the med or the Canaries is quite common, but seeing them off of UK coasts is a rare treat.  They aren't actually rare here, but given the circumstances of UK diving, they aren't often seen.
