Thank you Rudolph and Sergio. I realized the octopus was there when I was very close to him. I watched him because I was taking a shell otherwise I wouldn't have seen him

OK, thank you Peter. I think would be a good idea adding a filter in organisms view to find spotting with video, like: All | identified | not identified | with video.

It is a great idea to host only the video link from youtube, then you don't need to store all the videos, only the link. Congratulations, Project Noah staff are doing a great work

I agree, it's tough to find other videos on site. We're working on a way to find them all quickly. For now a workaround you can use is searching for "video" and "youtube" on the 'Organisms' page and most of them should come up.

Thank you very much shebebusynow. I agree, add video to spotting is a great idea, but I think it is necessary some type of search for videos because I don't know how to find new videos that people have spotted. I love Project Noah and everyday is getting better.
Next time I watch a mushroom I will do a full photograph repot, so I hope my friends be patient every time I will stop our walks to take a pic :)

Excellent picture! Congratulations! And video is an awesome addition to Project Noah, don't you agree?
And when you spot the mushrooms, please do a cut-away photo to illustrate the gills--it makes it so much easier to identify them! A spore print and description of the cap surface is also very helpful.

Spotting of the day!

"In spring, octopuses release 500,000 eggs and after they hatch both the male and female octopuses die."
