A fitting end for a seagull

I've wished some pretty hateful stuff on seagulls when they crashed my live baits but I never imagined something this creative for them....

Yikes

It is said that cephalopods are extremely intelligent, this photo supports that notion.

I'll be having nightmares for weeks.

Waist deep in the surf or standing at the water's edge on a jetty, takes on a whole new meaning!

The following is from Wikipedia:

If you were to clear cut an oak forest, the first plants to grow would not be more oak trees - it would be weeds. In life history terms, cephalopods are the weeds of the seas. With over-fishing and climate change, there may be more biomass of cephalopods now than anytime in recent history.
