Octopus and seal battle off Victoria's Ogden Point breakwater

Photographer Ty Spiers was out for walk on the newly re-opened Ogden Point breakwater on Sunday, May 5 2013, when he witnessed and photographed this battle between an octopus and a seal.

Spiers kindly provided the images to share with Black Press readers because it is so rare to see such an event up close.

The seal was the eventual winner of the ocean fight.
