Puget Sound Octopus, Washington

Photograph by Jesse Miller

"While diving in the cool waters of the Puget Sound this gorgeous squid [was] excited by my bright dive lights. I quickly settled myself and moved in for an amazing encounter," writes Jesse Miller, who submitted this photo, snapped in Washington State, to the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest. "This particular squid hovered for several minutes while I squeezed off several images. This one stood out with the beautiful blue highlights."
