Paper Nautilus are a type of octopus found in temperate and tropical waters world wide. Only the female has a shell which serves as a brood chamber and a flotation device. This shell is secreted by the greatly extended web of one pair of arms. Young females kept in aquaria have been found to start building a shell twelve days after hatching. It is a general thought that they carry their shells throughout their lives, adding to the outer edge as they grow

Nice composition simple and uncluttered, it really lets the subject take center stage. I do find that the focus is a little soft.
