A seagull finds a clam on the beach. After successfully fighting off another seagull for possession, it then has the problem of how to open the shell.
It flies effortlessly straight up into the sky; and then drops the clam (Indicated by the arrow) on the beach.
Now the clam has been broken open, the seagull quickly flies down to eat its lunch, before another seagull steals it.
It was a really bright, sunny day, with that heat-haze in the air. As I mentioned yesterday, all I could see on the view screen of my camera was solid black. I just pointed and clicked away as I watched the seagull performing his tricks. I did not expect to get any pictures! So I was delighted that my trusty Canon had actually captured the whole scene as it played out.
Below are the original photos, so you can see how tiny this all was.
Firstly, Gain possession of the clam.
Next, deploy tactics- Bombs Away!
Finally, dispose of the spoils, by eating the evidence!
I think you’ll agree; these are some pretty amazing shots!
