|Octopus killing a seagull off Ogden Point breakwater|
These are the first ever photos of a Giant Pacific Octopus catching and killing a Glaucous-winged seagull.
And they provide two important lessons: One, always carry a camera with you because you may happen upon a scientifically important event. And two, keep an eye out for the unusual.
I loved finding and booking this story for my local CBC morning show, On The Island.
Take a listen to Ginger Morneau, the woman who took these photos.
Here she is speaking with CBC On The Island host, Gregor Craigie.
And this is where I found this story.
