Canadian Ginger Morneau captured a scene on film that no one has before: an octopus killing and eating a seagull. Morneau was walking along Victoria’s Ogden Point with her husband Ken and brother Lou Barker when something in the water caught her eye.
“It was a stunning moment, to be sure … We were strolling along and talking. I saw the bird in the water and it looked like he was pecking at something underwater,” Mrs. Morneau told the Vancouver Sun. When the bird failed to raise its head, Morneau stepped forward to see the octopus. That’s when she started clicking pictures.
