Photographer Bob Lanson was on a walk with his family on the waters of Victoria, Canada when he saw something amazing: a harbor seal and a giant octopus fighting it out in the water.

Naturally, Lanson grabbed his camera and started taking pictures.

“We were walking back, and up popped what at first looked like two seals,” Lanson later recounted. “But once they got up to the surface I realized it was one seal with something in its mouth — which turned out to be an octopus.”

In the end, the seal won the battle, but the octopus put up quite a fight.

While this may seem unusual, octopuses are actually a major part of the seal diet. Who would have thought!
