sea gift

On Sunday I go on a long hike with my visiting son and daughter, out North Beach. We see three eagles in trees and then the reason. A dead octopus on the beach, large. A sea gift of protein. Four more eagles and other birds soared while people were close. Returning, this juvenile bald eagle is on the beach, happy with this meal. The speckled feathers changing from juvenile to adult are quite gorgeous. I want to go in the sea and meet our giant pacific octopus, too, some day.

For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: squat.

What comes to mind is Taj Mahal’s Squat that Rabbit, a song that always makes me want to dance!

I also want to know what it means. There’s a rather nice discussion at mudcat.org.

The photograph is from the Kinetic Sculpture Festival. And here’s a bonus… Squat that Octopus.
