Spotted this gull skimming into shore from about forty feet out in the bay moments before he landed at water’s edge with supper dangling from his beak. Gulls are usually pretty human tolerant but he kept a wary gaze in my direction as I raised the camera. And from his other side a dozen of his avian compatriots were winging or swimming in to try for a share of the prize. He vigorously flayed the crab on the rocks to break open the shell and basically gulped the contents in two quick snorts before taking flight. Didn’t even stop for a quick drink of water or pause to wipe off his beak.
