🦅BALD EAGLE VS. OCTOPUS 🐙:
A fishing crew shot this video of a knock-down, drag-out fight between an octopus and bald eagle off the coast of northern Vancouver Island.
John Ilett and his colleagues were working on Monday afternoon near Quatsino, B.C. when they said they "heard a lot of screeching, a lot of splashing sounds" and saw a bald eagle drowning in the death grip of a large octopus.
"They were grappling and struggling in the water," said Ilett on CBC's On The Island. "The thing dwarfed the eagle and completely wrapped it up."
The crew didn't know if they should intervene, but eventually decided to step in and "slowly peeled the octopus off" its prey.
"That gave the eagle just enough time to break free and swim to shore," said Ilett, adding the bird spent about 10 minutes gathering itself on the shoreline before flying off. The octopus also dived out of view after the eagle was freed. Illet did not see how the bird became trapped in the tentacles, but guesses the raptor tried to pluck the octopus from the ocean before realizing how big it was and becoming prey itself. 🦅🐙🦅🐙

I picked up a new camera last night, and wanted to test it out. i dig it 😎. Sony rx100 vii. It’s been a while since i’ve made an effort to go out and take pictures. Part of the reason is my lack of want to carry around my DSLR. I had the mark V version of this camera a few years back and got some really good pictures with it. i’m excited to have another one to carry around with me all of the time.
I spent my lunch break at an antique store in Pittsburgh Kansas one day last week and found this Lodge perch pan.I got it all cleaned up and seasoned. no before shots because it looked like it had only been used once and was in great condition.
