Photographer's Note

We have visited Grenada on a number of occasions and stay in a hotel at the north end of the island. There is a small beach and on this occasion it had become infested with sargassum weed, quite an ugly thing but obviously it traps all sorts of wildlife. A friend told me this is a juvenile Yellow crowned night heron. I watched for ages as it rummaged through the weed. It eventually came up with this octopus. It struggled with it for a while as the octopus wrapped itself around the bird's beak.I stood very still watching and then someone else came on the beach and frightened it and it ran off, clutching the octopus.
