    Default My Encyclia (octopus)

    I can't spell the last name, I didn't study it close enough off of Petes thread. My photos aren't quality, but you get the gist.

    The petals aren't as curly as Petes, but I love it just the same

    Nice shot, Traci. It's looking good!

    Do octopuses do herds? A herd of octopi. A gaggle?

    An entourage!!!

    Apparently they are loners. Squids, however, travel in "schools." You guys peaked my curiousity!
