The colors in this octopus were amazing!  Reds and violets, oranges and pinks; it was like a sunset vacillating right before my eyes, as the cephalopod moved.  As fantastic as the colors were, however, once the image was processed, I could see how well the tones would convert to monochrome.  For a detail of the colors and patterns that helped captivate me, see the next image:
